Haiku Bob – Round 9 – in the blink of an eye

 

the wingbeat
of magpies
end to end goal

 

 

 

shorter days
in the blink of an eye
Wells kicks the first

 

 

 

dropped mark
a moment later
another dropped mark

 

 

 

full moon
running rings around
their defenders

 

 

 

night haze –
DeGoey takes the shape
of Daicos

 

 

 

the rattle
of empty beer cups
consolation goals

  1. Very nice, Haiku.
    I’m really liking De Goey – although I haven’t watched a full Collingwood game. He seems to kick beautiful drop punts – has a strong core and kicks through the ball.
    For me, Daicos was a master of controlling the bounce and the banana, does De Goey have this in his game too?
