Over the hedge

through the veil.

To the ancestors house we go.

Maybe they can tell us

things we ought to know.

 

Whispers... whispers,

on the wind.

Open your windows,

let us in.

 

Secrets... secrets,

half truths, lies.

This is not my name,

these are someone else's eyes.

I like the rythm in this poem, it's as if the whispers are knocking at my own window XD.
Really good writing style! Hope to see more in future!

The most interesting part of this poem to me is the last stanza, which feels different to me than the first 2. Maybe it's just me?

 

Anyway, I like it- especially that last part.
