Haiku Bob – AFL Round 18 – the big sticks

 
murky stars
the air heavy
with Presti’s absence

 

 
deep winter
the mating season
for misdirected kicks

 

 
moon glint
a daisy among the weeds
of our forward line

 

 
night mist
Leon turns
expressionist

 

 
another behind –
a seagull sails between
the big sticks

 

 
slow moving clouds the full-back caught napping

 

 
Leon
the goal
the crowd

 

 
Presti
where he was
before the fog
