September Triangle – out now!

That’s her in the middle, the Carmella T

Hello, just a short note to let you know that the September Triangle is now available at your local distribution point.

Read about a special song that’s been gifted to the Indigenous children of Bermagui; one person’s detailed account of being tested for COVID-19; opportunities for changes – good changes! – we might embrace when we finally see the back of this virus; the story of an old fishing boat they just couldn’t keep down.

And of course a rundown of what’s happening in and around our villages.

The full-colour digital version will be available tomorrow afternoon – we’ll let you know when you can view it in all its technicolor glory 🙂

Be safe, be well, all of you.

Haiku Challenge

Thanks for all these wonderful entries. It is great to see we have such creative people living in the area.

From Lynn Lawson:

How to train your cat:
Let it know who’s boss, and then
Do the things it wants.

Fire and plague, now rain
2020’s down the drain
Can we restart, please?

Jen Severn:

Seen at Quaama Store:
Grinning farmer has exchanged
Blundstones for gumboots.

Tony King:

Jesus opening
caught behind at thirty-three
second innings hopes

A black cockatoo
The squeaky wheel in the sky
Cuts the peace in half

Endangered haiku
How long is our attention?
Is it good bye ku?

Gravity turned off
Even then it did not stop
The descent of man

Glenda Morgan:

Cloud reigns on my dam
Ah Water hens flash their tails
Iridescent blue

Three black cockatoos
Red of cheek pierce the sunlight
Shadows of plain rain

Rachel Colombo:

Corellas roosting …
fluttering white prayer flags
bound to burnt branches

Dean Turner:

A Wonga pigeon
Car alarm bird of the bush
Can’t give a hi coo

Don Firth:

First we had the fires
Then we had the pandemic
now we’ve flooding rains

Sarah Breakey:

Can’t find the zoom link
mask wearing is so stifling
Time to make coffee

Kai Jensen:

Rain and then more rain:
see the trees remembering
what it’s like to drink!

Triangle ‘Haiku’ Challenge

Here is something to keep your brain active on these rainy, indoor days: an online ‘Haiku’ Challenge! 

The rules are simple. A 3-line poem consisting of 5 syllables in the first line, then 7 syllables in the second, and 5 syllables in the third. It can be as serious or silly as you like. Put your poet hat on, write one and send it to us at contributions@thetriangle.org.au.

We’ll put together another post in a few days with all the haikus from subscribers.

Here are some the Triangle committee came up with:

I know we need rain
But I want to go outside
Sunshine tomorrow?

Dams and tanks brimful.
At risk of farmers’ ire, I’ll
Call it now – enough!

Slowdown in Sydney
Furious, frantic movement
Bows to Covid’s curse

Drumming on the roof
Penetrates the burnt landscape
Enabling spring

Knead sourdough bread
Pandemic panacea
Giving rise to hope

Bushfire grants

The Grants Hub has compiled a list of grants available to anyone who has been affected. You may have lost your home, possessions, or your income.

There’s a list of tradies offering free services, and grants for Indigenous corporations and land management groups.

There’s details of counselling and legal services available.

There’s even a page you can list your business if you’ve had a downturn — they say that some have recouped their entire Christmas losses within 24 hours of being featured.

And that’s just the national listings — there’s a long list of NSW grants/offerings too.
