electricity ~ Light Graffiti Photography and a Poem

law of conservation of energy

energy in an isolated system remains constant over time

The only thing that can happen to energy in a closed system is be transformed from one state to another.

Energy is not a material substance.

1898 Puerto Rico in Photographs

When I think of Puerto Rico
in my minds eye

I feel a dance …
her sway
centered
in the protective embrace
of the deepest blue ocean
and salty sapphire sea
gentle caresses
bubbling white foam
rhythmic waves
adoringly
lapping at her edges
lush green mountains
rustling
wind caresses
upon every
peak, crest
and valley
island sounds
secret songs only parrots
and frogs know
memory
of love
forever home

Puerto Rico stuck in the persistent state of 1898.  Unwilling to change.
A one hundred year old child.

Puerto Rico is 1898 encapsulated.

Puerto Rico refusing to change remains a commonwealth  suppressed. A prize of the Spanish American war.  An American possession needing protection since 1898.  Protection from what exactly, I cannot explain.  Culturally rich, with traces from every corner of the planet proudly waving two flags.  Bearing children with double identities.  Holding on tightly to illusions of self government.  Forever scrambling in frustration caused by this duality.

Puerto Rico, there is no denying your richness, beauty and my love for you.
