Sundown and Wind Farms

Sundown and Wind Farms

A Poem by Chris Shaw

far from finding
wind farms an eyesore
they stay a fascination as
offshore turbines salute
a fast dimming sky

from Roan beach
carbon fibre blades rotate
as moderate winds
aid graceful clockwise
turning

row on row they stand
embracing air
as though a surgeon's knife
sliced through sky's heart
rip roaring red no sutures
as crimson clots appear

they spread it bleeds
it plasters heaven's highway 
reflected in evening's dark
salty waters
skyscape slaughter

as golden sol
slips slowly beyond
horizon's black ribbon line
while hours pass on by
building clean energy

A beautiful description Chris, of magnificent, powerful structures. Where I sail, is on a very windy dam about 60 kms from where I live. Towering over the waters are huge wind towers, standing like sentinels watching us, keeping us safe. A nice read.

I've seen these giant fans before when I go back to my mother's hometown to visit family. And once my eyes meet with those fans I'm in awe of them. Sometimes i think what if one of those things were to come loose and tumble across the wide open field. its fascinating, really. Just as I am about your writing about it : )

Interesting view of these unique looking contraptions
I have yet to see any in Canada, they may be here somewhere, but I think they'd be an interesting landscape feature
Actually I'd like to see them able to convert into huge fans that help folks cool off during those super hot summer days
Good subject matter

Hey Chris.
The poem is quite different,
Being a doctor, I was more attracted towards the surgeon's blade.. Hehe.

Love,
