Haiku Bob – Round 15 – towers ablaze

This week, instead of the usual match report in haiku, I have submitted an alternative form of the Japanese arts, called haiga – an image accompanied by a haiku. The essential aesthetic of a haiga is that the poem and the image enhance each other, avoiding description or duplication.

 

I was at Metricon Stadium on the weekend, an attractively designed stadium, on a bright night with an almost full moon, where the Magpies stamped themselves as a serious contender.

 

I took this photo as I was leaving the stadium and wrote the haiku on the bus back to where we were staying.
