Week 2/Day 1. Ode to the electron (a poem)

The first poem of the second week of the online retreat.

Praise the impulse
and the current,
for they flow through us all.

Praise the spark
and the glow
for they show what we might not see.

Praise the conduit
and the transformer
for they allow us some control.

Praise the magic
and the mystery
for they make the possible reality.

Where there is no hope, there is darkness;
but where the electron sings? Electricity!
