Shiny summer sponge
Man’s clumsy copy of the leaf
Dappled sunlight shining gently for the world
Solar power pays by the kilowatt hour
Have solar not polar
You are smart and shiny and silently elegantly you turn
sunshine into electricity
Solar PV, makes me happee, when the sun shines,
blows my mind
Solar energy is amazing, woooooo!
Sunny side up!
It really enhances 15th century cottage roofs
Sun and air for your home to wear
You can’t tax the sun and with solar you can earn a tidy sum
DNO – Friend or foe?
I can’t see why there is not PV on every roof
Longing for the black slap of sun on every roof
Hoist the flag of energy freedom: Hail to the solar pv panels
Solar power, a gift from the gods
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.
