“Breathing” — Harper Dowd ’15

A static willow sprung into life —
Expanding and contracting as one
Inhaling and exhaling —
With every gust

 

Vapor collects overhead
The Darkness lingers
Shadows extend in all directions —
The World is consumed

 

Dense clouds erupt —
Power surges with every strike
Life contracts —
Enduring its greatest foe

 

Silence sets in
Stationary, it patiently waits —
Breathing in, breathing out
Time has no end
