Haiku Bob Round 20: somewhere the moon

 

winter rain —

the ball tossed between bodies

of water

 

 

somewhere the moon —

Port players have trouble

finding the ball

 

 

soggy night —

Blair uses his

lack of height

 

 

night rain —

Collingwood players

add to the glitter

 

 

non-stop rain —

a dyke erected

across the half-back line

 

 

long winter —

the ball stained

with Swan’s foot

 

 

20 goal win

adding years

to my life

  1. I hope that big hairy Moon is somewhere close in round 24 and perhaps a few weeks beyond, Rob.

    Some of those stars may see stars.

    (Is a dyke an igneous intrusion?)

  2. haiku bob says:

    i believe you’re right phanto.
    i have a soft spot for dykes.
    they kept me alive for 6 years in holland.

  3. By the way Rob;

    I would score that verse as one of your finest.

    Hows that for an olive leaf going into the finals?

  4. haiku bob says:

    nice try phanto.
