Music, strung between the world and mind
vibrates. We’re thus bound
by space and movement
along a string of glittering moment.

Is this where to find the word for god?
If there is a need
for a god to be,
then song can reflect necessity.

Caught between the mind and feeble tongue,
little can be done
that moves as it should.
In song made flesh, we could find a god.

Will it pass the god that was before?
What can we adore
beyond the icon
of plump or hungry man or woman?

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.
