Description: This piece was done in an artful fashion & it's hard to duplicate here also because of the accompanying drawing ~ I'm never sure how these translate so????
"But what of those to whom life is not an ocean, and man-made laws are not sandtowers,
But to whom life is a rock, and the law a chisel with which they would carve it in their own likeness?"....."What shall I say of these save that they too stand in the sunlight, but with their backs to the Sun? they see only their shadows, and their shadows are their laws."...."But you who walk facing the sun, what images drawn on the earth can hold you?"
Kahlil Gibran, The Prophet excerpts on Law.
However "IT" IS -------------------------------------------
However "IT" IS
For my Father's wordz
There is X law or rule
Echoing "IT's" voice
without criticizing reproach
intricate1 helped me C the vision in this one... That ol' Gibran feller seemed to stir sumthin' up inya... I kaint think of a better feller to be inspired by... I bet he'd like it...wether he could wrap his brain around it er not...I can't...and its STILL KEWL! You Rock Original! Good one Pipher"IT"agoogle... DAT
Interesting. I think that about sums it up. lol. Anyway, it's good to see someone taking an original turn with their writings and giving the readers something which no one else can. This got me thinking... and thinking some more... but comprehension failed to surface... but it's good to see some original thinking!
This is also uberly original. It's like a piece of art, that they can look at if they tilt to the side, and seem something different, and that my friend is skill. I didn't get it either, but the words were beautiful. The numbers seemed like subliminal messages, but also like the poem would crumble if they weren't there. Peace and love, Aya
I'm not that familiar with Gibran's work...but I'll have a go at this. Our dreams become reality,.. our father's words mean more than pretentious words,... we should be able to share our experiences with one another without fear of reproach. Some interesting and thought provoking points. That is, if I was anywhere near getting the meaning. ~Sandra
very contemporary and original. thought provoking as well. I like it although I am not sure what the significance of the numbers might be. perhaps I need to be more familiar with Gibran. nice work, just the same.
