A Radiant Romance

To fly so far, so fast
And land so gently

Upon a panel on planet Earth

Eight and a third minutes old
And worth its weightlessness in gold

Fallen, faded and cooled

Then to be told,
‘Oi photon. Get your coat on.
You’ve been pulled’

About The Project

The Element in the Room is a book of poems inspired by renewable energy in particular – and a book of pictures inspired by
poems about renewable energy.

Some poems were prompted by reflections on the elements,
some from talking with people working in the field, others from
renewable technologies themselves – the look of them, their
potential, people’s responses to them. Some are playful, cheeky,
pithy, others more lyrical and solemn, some are just plain daft.

Among them there’s a sonnet, a country and western song and a
prose poem called The Not-for-Prophit. You get the picture. None
is intended as a ‘last word’, they are offered for your pleasure and
interest and to provoke discussion.

The illustrations are by a range of talented artists, to be specific:
Heidi Ball, Laura Cochón, Tori Dee, Chloë Uden, Josie Ashe, Naomi Ziewe Palmer and More than Minutes.

‘The Element in the Room’ is a collaboration with Regen South West.
