Just Beyond the Unseen Veil

Just Beyond …

just beyond that unseen veil
unseen veil

 

So often when I feel its presence there
There’s nothing I can do but turn and stare
Trying to grasp but usually I fail
To reach out just beyond that unseen veil

I feel it, sense it, sometimes even breathe
In the unknown scents from unknown wreaths
If only I’d a ship to board and sail
To that strange place beyond the unseen veil

Why the longing, oh, my restless soul?
The thrill of possibilities unexplored?
Or some strange music from a parallel tale
The haunting call from beyond the unseen veil

The delicious thrill of being so close but not
Beyond the unseen veil with mystery is fraught

    Lovely work Shalini, and there are so many veils in life, beyond which is glimmered truth. Well constructed and evocative work. Nicely penned.

    Hello Shalini , This is a bit romantic too , I have always wondered about the burka in the middle eastern countries , and the magic behind them , Yet life itself is full of mysteries if only we don’t lose our passions for seeking them . Very nice writing and imaging !…………Ed
