My Colby-Sawyer Experience

“The changes I experienced moving from the Historic South to a college in Northern New England were not the only changes I experienced in the first-year Pathway seminar.”

Symphony

based on art by Sarah Raiche

The notes become alert
Quickly they escape the screeching
Carved into the round black world
Outside the colors mix
Blue, green, violet, tangerine
As one
Inside only notes can be heard
Playing continuously as life goes on
The colors mesh, arraying emotions
Affection the notes can't feel, only hear

-Desiree Akerley
