Other Footsteps

I manage to get caught

in a sudden downpour

Sheltering under a tree,

I noticed the silhouette of a man

His feet seemed rooted to the hill,

as if some strange force

had stopped him mid journey.

The shape of this figure seemed

to me to be bent forward

As if trying to continue on his way.

I felt the urgency in this lonely image

Where was he going, what was he looking for?

Why did I feel connected to his sadness?

Would I find out if I continued my own journey

The way he is facing

Would I find the answer he could not?

I walked on hoping time would tell his secret longing…
