Someone called

Posted to Action Poetry

Someone called my name today
I know not whom
His intangible voice
And when I turn to face him,
Mirages of sunlit trees
Blind my view
And his footsteps fade
Against the backdrop of the horizon
And I,
Lost in the frustration of silence
Turn and move ahead
My ears uselessly acute
And mind rapidly going back in time
