(Sestina) – For the Valley of Mantaro of Peru (Now in English and Spanish)

The Valley’s disclosure of blossoming has comefrom ancient mountains gorgeous with Spring.Ringing, my body’s a-dancing today, and in my mindkind winds unfold. A desire for the remote far winds….Fading I see rainbow’s pedestal, a burning sapphire,stones like opals, cover the mountains’ sunsets.Is this home of Thine the last? If so it is the best!As if an only daughter, she is nowise fair.’Tis but a path, the last; hast thou, I take her road.Here in the valley, comes sprouts and dust from kings,kings: breathless wonderment, immemorial beauty–;between the sunsets and the solitudes, an eternal splendor!Beauty’s never long asleep–it is thy guarded friend!Strange and dreamy are the stars thou followest.Strange and dreamy, are the stars over thy Valley.Is this home of Thine the last? If so it is the best!As if an only daughter, she is nowise fair.’Tis but a path, the last; hast thou, I take her road.I saw the condor: in the valley, but a few nights past,fast she flew, spilt into music, her winds of darkness;dreaming things I have not known, I stood alone,the moon hath set to mutiny, inside these old white bones,so their silence passed my world, tenderly, yes I stoodstrange oh tender enchanted thoughts–enchanted me!Is this home of Thine the last? If so it is the best!As if an only daughter, she is nowise fair.’Tis but a path, the last; hast thou, I take her road.Speak, for I wish to hear thy silver voice, moonlit.Moonlight clear, mystical, within my farthest dream,yet, in Thine eyes I see far tears! And I hear thou sayith:’I am spirit, ye but flesh, listen thou, what sayith thee?I say to ye: what have you done to my mountainsand my stream, it is now the shameful flow’r.’Is this home of Thine the last? If so it is the best!But I could not speak to the silver voice, moonlit,

her marvel, phenomenon, in her a farthest dream.She comes, no longer silent, yet fragrance to thy heart,what wouldst thou have me say? ‘All is fine from thy throne!’Ah no! Ah no! I say to thee, your eyes are part of Paradise!Ah yes! O goddess, alter-flame of the world, do not despairblinding sight has caused thy heart to ache and rain,yet your stars return to thee, your beauty, scarce it be.Is this home of Thine the last? If so it is the best!My heart is lost into the central valley of her delight,O thou relentless satiety, pass the ramparts of my soul.And she spoke to me again, with her silver moonlit voice,’Come forth with me, O prince!’ she said, ‘for far adventures wait.Thy heart is warmer than the light, drowned in contentment,go, and do not abandon me, ye footsteps I will see,tell Christ you cannot leave, cling onto my arms, please!’She is something beyond, far beyond, these human hours.Here in the valley, comes sprouts and dust from kingsyet, in Thine eyes I see far tears! And I hear thee say:’…tell Christ you cannot leave, cling onto my arms, please!’Note: in a Sestina, one often can feel (if done correctly) the creation of a rolling musical effect, almost like rolling down a hill, or mountain into a valley, which this was the effect I chose, and tried to produce in this poem. No: 1931 8-8-2007.Spanish Version(Sestina):Para el Valle del MantaroEl florecimiento del Valle se ha manifestado viniendodesde magníficas montañas antiguas con la Primavera.Tatareando, mi cuerpo es un baile hoy, y en mi mentevientos suaves se revelan. Un deseo por los remotos vientos lejanos…Decolorándose veo el pedestal del arco iris, un zafiro ardiente,piedras como ópalos, cubren las puestas del sol de las montañas.¿Es este mi último hogar? Si es ¡es lo mejor!Como un hijo único, este es bello de todas formas.’Este es sólo un camino, el último; ¿lo tomas?, yo tomo su camino.Aquí en el valle, vienen brotes y polvo de reyes,reyes: admiración sin aliento, belleza inmemorial–;¡entre las puestas del sol y las soledades, un esplendor eterno!¡La belleza nunca extraña dormir–este es tu amigo cauteloso!Extrañas y soñadoras son las estrellas que seguisteExtrañas y soñadoras, son las estrellas sobre tu Valle.¿Es este mi último hogar? Si es ¡es lo mejor!Como un hijo único, este es bello de todas formas.’Este es sólo un camino, el último; ¿lo tomas?, yo tomo su camino.He visto al cóndor: en el valle, sólo unas noches atrás,rápido él voló, rezumado en música, sus alas de oscuridad;cosas soñadoras yo no conocía, estuve solo,la luna preparó el motín, dentro de estos viejos huesos blancos,para que sus silencios pasaran mi mundo, tiernamente, sí estuve extraño,oh suaves pensamientos encantados–me encantaron!¿Es este mi último hogar? Si es ¡es lo mejor!Como un hijo único, este es bello de todas formas.’Este es sólo un camino, el último; ¿lo tomas?, yo tomo su camino.Habla, ya que deseo oír tu voz de plata, iluminada por la luna.Clara luz de luna, mística, dentro de mi más lejano sueñotodavía, ¡en mis ojos veo lágrimas lejanas! Y te oigo decir:’Soy espíritu, tú sólo carne, escuchándote decir, qué dices,yo te digo, qué has hecho a mis montañasy mi riachuelo, porque ahora es sólo una flor vergonzosa’.¿Es este mi último hogar? Si es ¡es lo mejor!

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
Pero no podría hablar a la voz de plata, iluminada por la luna,su maravilla, fenómeno, en su más lejano sueño.Ella viene, nunca más silenciosa, aun la fragancia al corazón,¿qué me harías decir? ¡Todo está bien desde tu trono!¡Ah no! ¡Ah no! ¡Te digo a ti, tus ojos son parte del Paraíso!¡Ah sí! O diosa, pira-altar del mundo, no te desesperesla vista cegadora ha causado a tu corazón dolor y lluviaaunque tus estrellas retornan a ti, tu belleza, escasa es.¿Es este mi último hogar? Si es ¡es lo mejor!Mi corazón está perdido en el valle central de su placer,O tú, saciedad implacable, pasas las murallas de mi alma.Y ella me habló otra vez, con su plateada voz iluminada por la luna,’Ven adelante conmigo, ¡O príncipe!’ ella dijo, ‘por aventuras lejanas espera.Tu corazón es más caliente que la luz, ahogada en la felicidad,ve, y no me abandones, tus pasos yo veré,dile a Cristo que no puedes irte, agárrate de mis brazos, ¡por favor!’Ella es algo asombroso, mucho más allá, que estas horas humanas.Aquí en el valle, vienen brotes y polvo de reyes,todavía, ¡en mis ojos veo lágrimas lejanas! Y te oigo decir:’¡…dile a Cristo que no puedes irte, agárrate de mis brazos, por favor!’Nota: En una Sestina, uno a menudo puede sentir (si es hecha correctamente) la creación de un efecto rodante musical, casi como rodando por una colina o montaña en un valle, efecto que escogí y traté de producir en este poema.# 1931 8-Agosto-2007.

California’s Central Valley Is a Petri Dish for Clean Energy

A Fresno patent attorney wanted to know the most pressing legal needs of clean energy companies in the San Joaquin Valley.Her emailed question made me think. The industry remains in its infancy but likely won’t dawdle in Huggies for long, especially if petroleum prices continue upward as analysts suggest. Oil-price.net still lists $99 barrel on its one-year forecast, and pump prices continue to climb.In my response to this attorney, I included concerns of solar, energy efficiency and biomass industries.”Land use is a big deal,” I wrote. “I have heard that because of increased difficulties getting federal land secured, solar companies are moving to get private land deals. So far those are with municipalities and small solar operations, teaming them with wastewater sites (big electrical users) in hinter-ish lands.”I also mentioned potential interest by Westlands farmers looking for a new source of revenue for farmland due to restrictions on irrigation water. Hundreds of acres of parched and dead grape fields and orchards greet passers by in this incredibly fertile sun-drenched valley.My co-worker Sandy Nax, who was also my compatriot on the now mothballed Fresno Bee business desk, says the Central Valley is a veritable Petri dish for clean energy with its abundant sun, wind in the Sierra foothills, methane rich dairy waste and bio-plant-rich farmland.

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
Should a series of studies prove correct — that clean energy will produce scads of jobs nationwide and in California — I believe a large role will be played by those bitten by the powerful American entrepreneurial spirit. I told the patent attorney to keep an eye on start-ups, especially those related to water and biomass.For instance, the more than $800,000 fine levied on two biomass plants in Merced and Madera counties by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency recently will likely worry folks in that industry. The Fresno Bee’s Mark Grossi called it “one of the state’s largest air-pollution fines in recent history.”Biomass defines the process of burning woody material and ag waste to generate electricity. Emissions are a part of that as they are for biogas from methane.Another sector worth a look, perhaps from an attorney’s perspective, is construction. Net-zero homes, the passive house movement and others will likely become dominant features of the new home market. A part of that is retrofits, something we’re quite familiar with at the San Joaquin Valley Clean Energy Organization.The practice of auditing buildings and upgrading systems that show inefficiencies is gaining converts and consumer interest. Some big players are starting to do this elsewhere. For instance, the Empire State Building is now a model of efficiency after a massive overhaul.I was talking about the status of the clean energy movement with Valley hydrogen power expert Gene Johnson, and he said the best bet for change is talking up the subject to our young people. “Education is the key to this whole thing,” he said.I convinced him to be one of the potential speakers in a program we’re working on with Valley high schools and colleges to prepare students for clean energy and entrepreneurial opportunities. Gene is one of those amazing people who can inspire people after 5 minutes in his presence. For example, he decided he wanted a hydrogen powered car so converted a glossy yellow Chevy SSR to run on the clean burning fuel.Gene’s pretty optimistic about the future of clean energy. “Once people see food and gas prices going up… they’ll realize self-sufficiency is the best way to deal with it,” he said. Gene’s definition of self-sufficiency is pretty global and refers to the United States being able to produce all its own energy, from multiple sources.

Sandy and I keep up with news, and on the subject of clean energy and energy efficiency it looks pretty good. Our hope is that this industry takes off in the next couple of years. That may be optimistic, but things are definitely happening.The jolt of federal stimulus money didn’t hurt. But it’s limited. In fact, we’re working on a couple of stimulus grants that sunset in the next 12 months. So we are biased — a bit.We were heartened by a post on grist.org by Bracken Hendricks and Jorge Madrid with the Center for American Progress in which they called “clean energy technology one of the fastest-growing sectors of the global economy and it is projected to grow to $2.3 trillion by 2020.”They also said American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (the official name of stimulus money) sustained the nation’s fledgling clean energy industry when it was struggling due to the economy and global competition.Nice to hear. I put a comment on their post saying as much.
