flinging shadows





    
remnants of the sun --
 
Goddard strikes
 
the first blow
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
leaves tumble...
 
tonight Cloke marking
 
everything
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
floodlights flinging shadows --
 
a hurried snap
 
for goal
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
sharp cold --
 
late goals before the long break
 
bite the Saints
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
autumn stars
 
reappear...
 
Daisy shakes the tag
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
seagulls
 
swooping for crumbs --
 
Krakouer snags a couple
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
a small crack opens
 
on the half-back line --
 
Leon flies out
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
the odour
 
of rotting leaves
 
Riewoldt goalless again

  1. Beautiful HB.

    Leon deserves his own haiku, I reckon.

  2. HB – very nice. Leon does deserve his own Haiku.

    Call it “Hidden flanker, kickless dragon”.

  4. PLEASE, Dips. That sledge is SO 2010.
