Haiku Bob: Round 6 – a shade more

 

after my team wins

I tell her I can play

guitar

 

 

 

leaves aflutter

the forward line

looking lively

 

 

 

wind gusts –

the back and forth

of the Sherrin

 

 
Autumn sky –

a shade more black and white

in the crowd

 

 

 

commentators on mute –

Pendlebury narrates

the win

 

 

 

burst of sunshine

Collingwood briefly

back to life

 

 

 

MCG dusk –

players jumping

at shadows

 

 

 

Autumn rain

drinking in

my football team’s win

    The joy of haiku is how an economy of words says so much. Images more than descriptors.
    Loved the playing guitar and Pendlebury narrates verses.
    Thanks HB

  2. Another Brilliant Set of Haikus.

    Ball rolled on the ground,
    favored men couldn’t grab it:
    Selwood under wraps.

  4. MGLFerguson says:

    Flat, slow and fumbly’s
    no way to play footy, son.
    Geelong lose again.
