too many loves

unnamedmy being
is a jigsaw puzzle
one of those
more than
a
thousand pieces
kind
so it’s
just
impossible
for me
to name
a single love
that
has influenced me
for all time
i mean
each piece
of the puzzle
has been colored
and
defined
by
a different
love
so
there can be
no
singularity
no
single
book
can claim
the fame
or
blame
for
what
this mind
conveys

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.
