Haiku Bob: round 13 – moon at every turn



magpies darting here and there

the moon

at every turn






beneath exploding

pinks and blues

Harry’s bursting run






bitter night Ball bundles his catch






full moon –

we have their forwards

surrounded






Toovey arrives

at a moment unafraid

of his limitations






brief eclipse –

Didak shakes

his shadow loose






full moon Beams in space






winter night

Cloke lines up

my toes curl






Swans broken –

the cabernet’s tannins

soften

    Rob,

    it wasn’t Swan that was broken from the Cabinet tanning it was Rudd’s hide if I remember correctly.

    Sorry to be so condescending to such fine work.

    I imagine a lunar eclipse is ideal material insofar as your genre is concerned.

    my car doesn’t have a sunroof.
    it has a moon roof.

    eclipse –
    no matter where they go
    Presti’s shadow

    I also enjoyed the phenomenon of a wine seeming to improve as the game progressed. Shiraz, rather than Cabernet, but remarkable nonetheless.

  5. Phantom says:

    Had the Swans prevailed would that have effected the whine.
