Poetry: Between the Veil


Between the Veil
There’s a veil between two well-known worlds…
The past…
A whirlwind of roller-coaster memories that still travel forwards 
through the archival mind

“It’s time…. ,” the wind whispers….

And the present…
While several years have passed…
Yet, the heart still sometimes finds itself lingering in the middle of that veil.

It’s that time of season…where tears once overflowed
That fell upon a pillow of sleepless nights….
The dancing winds arrive upon its cold season,
As they blow in distant memories,
reminding of what once had been…

“It’s time…. ,” the wind whispers….

The heart still knows the season…
The heart still knows the time…
The heart still remembers…

But begs to cross through that veil,
To a world, where distant memories don’t linger…
And hearts, still don’t feel the sting,
From sleepless nights upon its pillow…

For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven… (Ecclesiastes 3:1)

“Within the depths of our mind, we are battling the duel of light and darkness…good and evil…love and hate…” Between Light and Darkness is Ariana’s most recent collection of poetry… Cherry’s frequent message she delivers throughout her work is, “The journey through the darkness, back into the light.” Her hope is to let others know that they won’t be in that place of darkness for long – that they indeed can reach the light once again…She also wants her readers to know – that – it is okay if they find themselves in that bleak blackness…Sometimes we feel guilty for going to that dark place – but it is necessary to conquer the demons that battle our souls…. Other books that Cherry has written include "Only If" and "Twisted Paths Poetry." Her epic tale, “Only If,” won the “Reader’s Favorite Award” and a 5 star review…and her collection, “Twisted Paths Poetry,” received a 5 star review from Realistic Poetry International. She has been writing ever since she was a child. Some of her inspirations include Edgar Allen Poe, Robert Frost, Stephen King, Emily Dickinson, Christopher Pike and Shel Silverstein. Ariana writes a variety of genres: inspirational, humorous and horror – although writing horror is one of her favorites…. She was 12 years old when she read Poe for the very first time – which inspired her epic poetry tale, “Only If.“ During other parts of her free time, she enjoys taking photos and creating art. Her “day-jobs” include working as a church administrative aide and reporting for a local newspaper.
