The Veil

The Veil
The Veil

The mystical veil is thin tonight

Twixt this world and yon

Yearly intermingling of the souls

Essences blending effortlessly

Pray for those who’ve gone on

The sheer curtain is drawn back

Granting a brief sight of the formless

These worlds are close if we but knew

Dance tonight to the song of the ages

I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.

  1. this poem is such an elevated poem for this nightly festival. so much more than the rolls of toilet paper that are showered upon the neighborhood grouch’s home and yard, not to mention lighting a bag of dog poo, ringing the doorbell and running away so they have to answer the door and stomp on it. Ah, the transcendental bliss of it all!! Fond memories!! Fond memories!! ;-D
