The Veil

Today’s Writing 201: Poetry assignment asked to write about a type of screen in haiku. My 4 haikus are about the screen/veil that is between Heaven and Earth. The invisible screen that keeps my mom and I physically apart.

Through Heaven’s clear veil
I know you watch over me
Wish I saw you too


The Heaven/Earth veil
Cannot stop love, drifting down
it envelops me


Invisible, yes
Impenetrable, think not
I feel, but can’t see


Fingertips touching
on either side, Heaven, Earth
Love will never die



  1. The first haiku gave me chills. It’s so true. Thank you.

    • Thank you. I know my mom watches over her family.

      • I hope my sister is watching too. She died too young.

        • I am sorry for your loss. This blog is my outlet for my grief over losing my mom. I believe your sister is watching, not all the time, but she checks in. Email me if you want and we can chat:

  2. They are lovely. It’s interesting though. I read your haikus before reading the introduction. I was thinking you were talking either of God or a loved one. Nice!

    • Thank you! You were correct – I was talking to my mom.

  3. Be open to crossed over loved ones coming in your dreams. They are around us all the time too they are just in the Astral World or Heaven, love and light C.

    • Thank you for your comment – I do try to be open to spirits who visit. I know my mom visits, I just wish I could see her, reach out and touch her, hear her. Every once in a while I dream of her.

  4. So glad you posted today, Kathy. I am having a tough morning, and I needed to read your words. It’s been 1 year and 9 months since I lost my mom to pancreatic cancer. I enjoyed going back through some of your posts this morning, because so many emotions are universal to us motherless daughters.

    • Hi Amy: Nice to hear from you. I’ve enrolled myself in a poetry assignment, so I will be posting daily for a bit. I’m sorry you’re having a tough time. For me, they come and go. It’s a bad time of year for me – hospitalizations, end of treatment, surgery to alleviate pain after which I almost lost my mom, realization the final days were coming, then my mom’s death. It will be 7 years on November 16th. I wish you better days, Take care.

  5. Love your haikus! 🙂

    • Thank you.
