The Lady of Amicalola Falls

Life is water, flowing in a stream.

Hydrogen and oxygen in a ratio of two to one,

atoms gather and flow together.

Meandering from a mountain, from melted ice.

Springs gush forth from the side of the mountain.

Rain falls and gathers in streams.

Clouds to raindrops.

Falling to the group, water collects.

Spirit caresses her life giving elixer water.

Gracefully collecting into streamlets,

life flows into ever larger bodies.

From a single rain drop,

the ocean is created.

At Amicalola Falls, waters falls.

The Cherokee, worshipped her.

Sent on a trail of tears away from her at a time,

their spirit lives in the falls.

A woman in love.

She falls, and becomes a Spirit bird.

I see her in the mist.

The Lady of the Falls.

Spirit bird.

About kayaerbil

I am a Berkeley educated chemistry Ph.D. who is moving into the area of working on developing appropriate technology for communities that are subjected to socio-economic oppression. The goal is to use simple and effective designs to empower people to live better lives. Currently, I am working with Native Americans on Pine Ridge, the Lakota reservation in South Dakota. I am working with a Native owned and run solar energy company. We are currently working on building a compressed earth block (CEB) house that showcases many of the technologies that the company has developed. The CEB house is made of locally derived resources, earth from the reservation. The blocks are naturally thermally insulating, keeping the house cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Eventually, a solar air heater and photovoltaic panels will be installed into the house to power the home and keep it warm, while preserving the house off the grid. A side project while in Pine Ridge is a solar computer. I hope to learn about blockchain encryption software for building microgrids. In addition, it is an immediate interest of mine to involve local youth in technology education.
