“Ever has it been that love knows not its own depth until the hour of separation.” Kahlil Gibran



Jamie Dedes

nothing moves, not even the reluctant beat

of your heart, which once danced with mine

and made rough sense of life, now so like


summer noon when all is still, even bees

and your gray eyes that happily feasted

on mine and shared my lamentations


death too grieves at the sorry circumstance

of such fools whose trivial discontents and

untoward presumptions fade into nothing


tears that we embraced the world and the

flesh and neglected the shadows that rode our

backs where angel wings more rightly rest

The focus of "The BeZine," a publication of The Bardo Group Beguines, is on sacred space (common ground) as it is expressed through the arts. Our work covers a range of topics: spirituality, life, death, personal experience, culture, current events, history, art, and photography and film. We share work here that is representative of universal human values however differently they might be expressed in our varied religions and cultures. We feel that our art and our Internet-facilitated social connection offer a means to see one another in our simple humanity, as brothers and sisters, and not as “other.” This is a space where we hope you’ll delight in learning how much you have in common with “other” peoples. We hope that your visits here will help you to love (respect) not fear. For more see our Info/Mission Statement Page.
