Awaiting Thunder, he Dreams – Robert Okaji

https://robertokaji.com/

If all our voices were to meet in the atmosphere
what could the rain achieve?

When we give nothing we have nothing.

Is it enough to listen?

Wisps and heaps, ripples and sheets.

Accumulated, dispersed, fingers
unknotting death’s
grip, steps taken around the flames,

in caution, in delight,
imagining the greatest undoings.

“Awaiting Thunder, He Dreams” was first published in Red River Review, in August 2018.
