Googong

On Sunday 28 September, we held the Sri Chinmoy Googong Challenge.

I was quite busy and did not take many photos. Still...

A lightness of spirit o'ertakes me,
As if I rode the giddy chariot of Heaven.


ODE ON AID STATION

Refreshment for thy betterment.
Miracle of ages,
Wonder of aeons:
This clear liquid,
Life-sustaining
Since first life
Breathed not
In its self-same origin.


Not many paddlers took notice of my warning though...


Upon your ‘ware!
The rumours tell of
A giant cephalapod
Lurking in the lake’s deeps –
The famed Kraken
Being not half its measure!


I can tell there were that day numerous unexplained capsizings of craft, yet all thankfully returned to dry land.
