(ANGERONA) Sunstead

I am a woman, kept bound
with my mouth sealed,
one finger laid against
my gagged lips
my will

in darkness
in silence
in death

a short period of darkness
before the power
before the sun

appears through silence.

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.

One thought on “(ANGERONA) Sunstead

  1. I really had to look up Angerona. The Goddess of fear/anxiety/silence. Oh. Yes. That is the women/girls in detention. Such a short poem that captures it exactly. The question is, will the sun come up? Will they encounter Apollo?
