haiku bob: clear above the clouds









bringing autumn
tackle by tackle
to the Blues









a mountain
clear above the clouds –
Dawes marks again









tumbling leaves –
Ball turns himself
inside and out









down on form Leon chases some hidden goal









a row of Blues
neatly laid out
for Didak’s trickery









pack forms –
Swan ducks his head
into the cloud









the swirl of leaves –
Pendlebury pauses
in the torrent









autumn sun sinks fast Blues within three









the crowd saves up its voice for a bolt from Harry









Cloke’s bomb
lands in the mulch of beer cups
and song

    HB

    The Pies certainly did bring it tackle by tackle.

    Lovely stuff.

  2. HB – a mulch of beer cups and song – sounds like a Collingwood rabble !!
