“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
