Tag Archives: veil



when the night is still,
amber lit, from horsehair walls
memories whisper
century-old tales slip through
the parting of the veil

A Tear in the Veil…

Victims of the fray
Slumber ‘neath shrouds of linen
Soon comes the reaper.

(…and a 21st Century version of the haiku above. Thanks to Susan at buildingapoem for the nudge 😊 …making me work for those syllables! )

Victims of the fray
Sleep under shrouds of linen
Soon comes the reaper.

Beyond the veil
Heaven and hell fight for souls
Free Will always wins.
