Two Poems from TD Nelson


 We imagine our glittering devices 
 entirely new 
 tickets to worlds
 where we hover 
 like giants 
 in biometric finery 
 and color correct 
 the mottled sea of corpses  


 Eternal fires to
 Celebrate what’s around us!
 You and yours—
 Celebrate the air with me and mine!
 Drink this air with me.
 Let us swim naked together—
 Let us bathe naked always in the salt of the sea.

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.
