I Am The Wind Stilling

by Juliet Antill

I am the wind stilling
I am the day burning
I am the ground hardening
I am the moon darkening
I am the sap sinking
I am the fruit dropping
I am the flower curling
I am the leaf falling
I am the blood cooling
I am the eye closing
I am the breath leaving

I am the breath coming
I am the eye opening
I am the blood quickening
I am the leaf greening
I am the flower unfolding
I am the fruit swelling
I am the sap rising
I am the moon rounding
I am the ground yielding
I am the day broadening
I am the wind flying
