Watching the World

she steps in morning air
raindrops tap percussion
solo down gray
stretched guttering

white inkblot scrolls
through sky
Rorschach cloud
floating by

she sips cold coffee
from a chipped cup
whistles notes to a
scarlet bird

he cocks head side to side
from scaffold
on an oak limb
then sings back an answer

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 “Watching the World

  1. This made me smile: my father used to whistle the cardinal call to get our attention. I use the same call for my children. I call back and forth to cardinals and chickadees – and then someone suggested I might be interfering with their mating. Oh! Wouldn’t want to do that, but I do like interacting!
