Woke up one twilight

The dimming rays of the setting sun
Touch my face gently

Peace, silence, relief

Wishing to return to my nap, but
A voice calls my name

From afar


Went up lightly from my rest

Glanced the surroundings, however
Only a shadow

Remembering when was
my last

@Flourish: I want the poem to give a sense of peace and mystery. Thank you for your comment!

I liked this poem and was surprised no one has commented upon it yet. It has a certain peace to it but also prompts questions.
