Moonlight Closeness

When the moon is full,
wondering where you are,
I will look up,
tears will play, glisten
freely on my cheeks,
knowing moon’s silver
cloak covers, warms us both,
bringing me closer to you
than we ever were before.

JOAN LEOTTA lays with words on page and stage. Her motto is to produce
“encouraging words through Pen and Performance.” Her poems, essays, short stories and articles have been widely published. Her poetry has appeared in Stanzaic Stylings, Peacock Review, Creative Inspirations, and other journals. Her performances of tales of food, family, and strong women have entertained audiences at fairs, in schools, libraries , and museums. When she is not at the computer or on stage, you can find her reading a book, walking the beach, or traveling to be with family.


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.
