Haiku Bob – Round 12 – rise and rise


speccy –
the rise and rise
of the crowd




opening bounce –
our idle chatter




lead shrinks
I’m unsure of so many




game gets tight –
he takes his arm from around
his wife




winter clouds –
the opposition team catches us
then goes past




one goal to win it –
I’d do it myself
if I could




narrow loss
the full moon
barely rising

About rob scott

Rob Scott (aka Haiku Bob) is a Melbourne-born resident of Sweden who spent his adolsecence in Queensland. He has also had stints in Japan and The Netherlands but calls Victoria Park home. He writes haiku in between teaching whisky and drinking English, or something like that.


  1. I don’t know how youse dunnit, but I knows youse dunnit.

    Superb HB, especially the line about taking his arm from around his wife.

  2. Brilliant HB. Is an “I was there” Haiku different to a “Global Pass Gogglebox” Haiku?
    Speaking of which, is the screen size limited to 7″ for international streaming as it is for AFL Live Pass streaming this year? Will affect my purchasing decision when we head OS in September to escape my Eagles ritual end-of-season humiliation.

  3. Nice Haikus!
    That loss would have been heartbreaking.
