Intel Corp Using My Poem To Promote Wind Energy...

...In an advertisement promoting the use of Wind energy in Oregon State. (

Here's the pertinent e-mail:

"From: MacKenzie, Bill

Subject: use of your poem


Thanks again for giving Intel permission to use your poem, “The Magic of a Breeze”, in another ad promoting wind power. Intel is the largest purchaser of wind power in Oregon and we want to encourage others to follow our example.

Would you be kind enough to reply to this e-mail just giving us written permission to use your poem so I have a record of our conversation? I will certainly make sure to send you a copy of the ad when it is completed, which should be in a couple weeks.

By the way, I think I sent you a copy of the last ad we did with your poem, but attached is another copy in case I didn’t.

I didn't solicit this, it came to me via Bill from Intel finding my poetry online. You never know who you'll reach with your poetry when you're on the internet. I wanted all of you to see this, because it's all too easy to think that your voices aren't heard - but they are. Any of you can choose to be a messenger of light and love or whatever message you see fit, and it can make an impact long after you first put pen to paper or fingers on keys.

Thanks for reading,


PS: I'm not taking compensation for this ad other than the crediting of my work, due to the cause being one I personally promote. See for some of my efforts on this issue.
Words are the mind's bridge - it's connection to the universe.
Love is the heart's bridge - it's connection to all other souls.
Loving words can work miracles.
