Renewable energy



This is part of a collection I am putting together under the mother title of "Fruit of the epiphany tree" which is the name I've given to the large oak tree at the back of my garden, that drops its leaves from now until January, giving me time to think about things whilst raking them up from my lawn. The first verse stands alone as a haiku, but I've added a second, sticking to the same amount of syllables to create a poem.



Renewable energy (hidden in plain view)


The sun sustains life
And its power can be harnessed
As long as it shines

But

Hidden in plain view
From those who would choose blindness
It cannot be seen

Verse two can be changed into a singular haiku by changing one word in the last line.

Hidden in plain view
From those who would choose blindness
Truth cannot be seen
