Haiku Bob: AFL Round 15: blur of bodies

hot start
the coolness
in our play

Leon’s blind turn
I top up the wine glass
without looking

surrounded by winter
O’Bree works the ball loose
unnoticed

rolling thunder
the ball tumbles
from end to end

dwindling lead
I take everything
back

in winter’s hold
driven only by the goal
we need

less than a goal the blur of bodies
