Linking with Imaginary Gardens for the prompt "writing unseen"

" You don't have a soul. You are a soul. You have a body."
~ C. S. Lewis
Our bodies are a bed and breakfast lodge for a soul
that has places to go
we sometimes forget their presence
because they are the quietest of guests
treading down the innermost halls
preparing for a trip
with no plans to stay at all
so we attempt to keep up the cottage and
we fluff the pillows and smooth the sheets
but the soul doesn't eat a big breakfast
and never needs too much sleep
prolonging it's stay is futile
for it has plans we cannot conceive
if one looks with scientific eyes
they won't see past the amenities
but if we simply close them
and search within the confines of our heart
we will find there is something bigger
than this world could ever impart...
so I say to the world of traveling souls
and that means you and that means me to
have a little faith
and we'll leave the light on for you.
