Haiku Bob – AFL Round 20 – holding it all together

early resistance
over before
my first beer 

 

shaking off winter
Swan loses
another tag
 

 

late winter squall
spot fires stretch across
half-forward

 

dust settles…
magpies go back to feeding
on remains

 

fragmented sky
Didak holding it all
together

 

kick out –
passing clouds
bunch up

 

empty paper bag
floats across the ground
filled with Richmond’s hopes

 

twisted branches
a leaf wriggles free
Didak goals

 

harsh wind –
the papers said
‘in honour of Bowden’
