Veil

We have been
taught.
We have been
programed.
The veil grows
thicker
over our eyes.
Our senses
are limited.
We see very little.
Remove the
veil.
Think past what
you were
taught.
Break the
cocoon
you’ve been
encased in.
Look beyond
what you’ve
been taught.
There is
so much
more
than meets
the eye.
Think hard
and
you’ll see
what’s beyond
the veil.
Much to
learn.
Much to
explore,
Infinitely
more!

Have something to say about the poem?

John Prophet is considered by many in the literary world to be the Salvador Dalí of poetry. His rough-hewn unfettered style mimics the artist’s unconventional view of perceived reality. Prophet encourages (through the skeletal approach of his writings) the reader to focus on the individual meaning of each word, thus allowing its message to be front and center. Meaning that can be muted within sentences and paragraphs. This creates vividness otherwise hidden. The skeletal nature of his efforts also allows the reader to flesh out meaning based on the readers personal worldview. Thus no two observers are reading the exact same creation.Wordsmith Association

Thin Veil short poem

I begin unlearning the script, in irreality, find myself my shadow in intermission envelops the virtue peak of sorrow, silence of space, give your hand, within clarity of reason, inner globe of light, your kiss melts. A water lily grows
