#Haiku: Portal

radiant thin veil

enlightenment holds the key

afterlife’s portal

Author’s note: In response to Carpe Diem #1305 No Key

In our new episode of  The Rubaiyat, we have reached Quatrain XXXII, the sequel to yesterday’s quatrain, which Chèvrefeuille has called ‘No Key’.

There was a Door to which I found no Key:
There was a Veil past which I could not see:
Some little Talk awhile of ME and THEE
There seemed – and then no more of THEE and ME.
