Above the Veil is a collection of poetry and lyrical short prose. It is aimed at the mature reading audience and was penned by Henry White II. The book is a collection of poetry composed over a long period in which the poet reflects on numerous universal themes such as grief, love, mental health, and the potential for happiness in a difficult life. Seeking to share a sense of solidarity with readers who are going through similar experiences, the poet uses their work to openly reflect on their own journey through life in order to show that peace and happiness could potentially be in anyone’s future.
The greatest poetry is something that comes from the soul; where a poet looks on the scars they bear from the experiences that life has handed them, only to take those scars and use them to form words that themselves form beautiful ideas in the reader's mind. Henry White II is clearly a talented pedigree of poet, pulling apart the low points of his life with such an amazing sense of introspection paired with a raw talent for poetic phrases that made each of the entries in this collection come alive in my mind as I read them. Above the Veil is almost mystical in the wisdom it shares, with a stunning technique and form that lets the poet’s thoughts and feelings take flight from the page. It is a meditative tool as much as it is a piece of art, and for that reason, I have no hesitation in recommending this collection of poetry to the shelf of any reader.
