Poetry by Robert Mierisch has been a travelling companion for some weeks now. Robert’s work and passion is renewable energy and this is a poem he wrote in 2014
Living in Limbo
Imagine a future robust and gentle,
Dream of ways to bend waves, wind and sun
to meet our needs with sympathy
for plants and fauna, every one.
Refine the methods and
Study the field.
Reduce the costs then,
Measure the yield.
Waves are intense and last for days.
Surviving most storms is the structure’s challenge,
Many have found effective ways.
Proving economics is the hardest.
Wind is a wonder,
Sun is a gentler source.
