Second Sight?

The cat’s sibilant warning

like a snake: fair notice

triggers reflex / perception

some 6th sense, shared tele—

kinetic wavelength? Or

strict visual awareness without

our observation . . . completely

instinctual protections


Word prompt: sibilant, by Sammi’s Weekend Writing Prompt 271 , via Bill at Our Literary Journey

My chosen title, “Second sightcould aptly describe what might be the completely scientific explanation (an extension of our sense of sight) for the paranormal “sixth sense” beyond our 5 known senses of touch, sight, smell, taste, and hearing. However, the phrase is distinctly connected to the idea of an often divine, often occult, supernatural 6th sense.
