The veil between the worlds

There! No Here!
Can you feel it? Just now?
How thin the veil is
between the worlds?

It’s as if one can reach
a hand across and through
to the other side
and actually touch what often feels
so distant and far
even out of sight—over some horizon.

But during times like these
on the full moon of tonight
Oh I am going to reach through
with my intentions to live true
to the deep longings of my soul
to the wild joys of my heart
and trust
in the practice of this navigation
to carry my spirit canoe over
as if the veil is but an illusion of perception
a creation of inherited imaginations
no longer serving
this being and becoming
of self and world
