i saw it from where god sees it everyday.
it looked like the veil of a bride...studded with little pieces of dreams that glow in the dark.
as i got closer,i could make out her shy eyes which looked out in eternal anticipation.
and when i finally touched her face,she smiled.
and i knew,i was home.

The veil covers the identity of the beloved and the lover's sight experiences a visage on seeing this glowing splendor.. ( i think i am going through a Sufi phase right now)

I could make out this was from the plane's window :-)
