AFL Round 11: cloudburst by Haiku Bob

cloudburst

 

 

 

Queen’s Birthday

the number one pick rubs shoulders

with the best

 

 

 

 

 

this day

looks no different

yet eight unanswered goals

 

 

 

 

 

dark clouds

and Presti

shut out any light

 

 

 

 

 

cloudburst –

goal sharks spill over themselves

for crumbs

 

 

 

 

 

rain comes down hard

no one sees him

until he takes the grab

 

 

 

 

 

gusts

of cold rain

swirling Neon

 

 

 

 

 

wind tossed rain –

the two rucks late in the last

bend and sway
