Nonviolent Energy


Unlike wood from deforestation,
nuclear power from radiation
oil from earth's devastation
coal from air and water pollution
nonviolent energy is the solution

With power inslides
the oncoming tide
With power the waves
flow into the caves
The giving wind's flow
makes propellers go.
With heat geothermals
warm earth's epidermals
radiant energy machines
can make the earth green
One needn't build a violent dam
to harness the roaring waterfall.
The allblessing blazing sun
is available to everyone


Footnote:
Wind, solar, geothermal, tide, wave
nondam waterfalls and radiant energy machines
are some of the many nonviolent
energy sources which can save
our planet

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
