The Unseen

This week’s prompt from One Deep Breath is about the unseen.

O Inspiration,
Driving me with whips of thought
To write it all down.

A damp autumn breeze
Whispers promises and threats
Of winter coming.

It would be too easy to write only about things I can’t find, that’s been a constant in my life, but I would also be remiss to not acknowledge it once…

Where is my cellphone?
I could have sworn it was here!
Call it and listen.
