Poem 8: Empacher

Training for the worlds
Eating to fuel a machine
Hours on the water

Ten miles still to go
Energy burns from within
Purpose in the rain

Downstream in the cold
Empty river full and fast
False speed but feels good

Upstream back to base
Lactic burns in every joint
Spent yet invested

 ---------Just trying some haikus

These ones are on today's theme of inhabiting a persona -- a rower preparing for the single sculls world championships ....

Like this. Takes me back.
BTW, did you watch the Boat race?
How embarassing to lose an oar.
What are the latest rollocks called again? Something beginning with a -c-?
