Haiku Bob: AFL Round 14 – green shoots

first bounce
the calm of dusk
disperses

 

green shoots
spear through charred remains
Cloke finding form

 

no breeze to speak of
the moon
at the scoring end

 

artificial light
Daisy’s goal
fanciful

 

Presti repels another attack moths bash into floodlights

 

wondering what it is
that makes Jack kick so straight
he hits the post

 

cantering to victory
Josh and the half-moon
become the night
