Khadijah Lacina | Five Poems

Chasing the Dragon, Roger Kohn

1.

wrapped in rain
light between
trees the soft
fragrance 
of woodsmoke
the sound

2.

damp scent of grief
caught beneath 
leaf and soil
memory
the whisper
of sand
on wood 

3.

flamelit night
throws her best
shade
our bodies
lost still
we stay
the dance

4.

skyloosed bolt
shattered oak
fire warms rain

5.

always moving toward
you forget the sandy
scrape of a cat
licking your hand
the voiceless
shush of wind
through leaf
full trees
the goldshot dark
of the backs 
of your own eyes
