I touched the veil with fingertips; beyond my reach
a dreamscape of wishes and desires.
It parted just enough
to tease me with endless possibility.

But like a door slammed on my hand,
the veil closed with a final bang,
as if nailed tighter than a coffin
of dreams laid to rest before their time.

But I awoke one day, the sun on my face!
No veil, no coffin.
But life! Life! Life!

And the glimpse became a landscape
of blissful reality
unveiled in the Light of your Love!

Free verse sonnet in response to Björn’s prompt at
Join us, won’t you? We’re a welcoming crew!
