The Euphoria of PPG


Recommended Posts

Can always tell when the weather is rubbish as the activity on here is very low.

I posted this 9 years ago, so for the benefit of all the new members here it is again.

Green fields with unobstructed view,

Man and machine plus paraglider too,

With apprehension and excitement mixed,

As pilot in command stands transfixed,

Upon the endeavour to achieve the goal,

Of leaving the ground and enlightening the soul.

The kit is all checked, the engine warm for action,

Lines taut it’s time to push on forward,

The wing rises quickly with exigency to fly,

The pull of the risers asserts its direction,

A few steps now are all that are needed,

Power, power, power the instructors shout heeded.

Feel the lightness of footfall advancing,

With each stride into the consciousness,

The level of determination is all consuming,

To keep the feet moving as gravity is beaten,

Now airbourne the apprehension is receding,

Flight is now yours, full with esoteric passion.
