Poem: "Infinite Potential"

This poem came out of the March 1, 2016 Poetry Fishbowl. It was inspired and sponsored by Anthony Barrette.  It deals with renewable energy.


"Infinite Potential"


These are the things
that were given
with infinite potential:
the wind and the sun,
the water and the earth.

The power of the elements
is without measure, without end.

It is more than enough
to meet the needs and desires
of humanity, to light the cities
and irrigate the farms.

Only the foolish clutch to themselves
the dusty lumps of power left
by aeons long gone.
