Haiku Bob: Round 9- the cat’s purr



after the sky bleeds cats from every nook and cranny




no moon Beams the light inside the arc




the dark rises –

I wait for the moon

and Leon




one star –

the pack releases

Ablett




ravaged trees –

the flimsiest of hopes

on Caff’s boot




the cold begins its creep shots drift wide




footprints in the dew…

all the ways

we failed to score




on our tails all night even the leaves chase me home




days when nothing’s meant to last the cat’s purr

  1. HB – the leaves chasing you home – great visual.

    Nice Rob, I wish you were a Cats supporter. You’re ok.

    Early in the last quarter was one of the memorable ‘Collingwood leaves’.

    Phanto – there are times when I wish I was anything but a Pies supporter!

    HB

    Good to know you’ve got the Tasmanian on your side.

    Bit like the dalai lama in Caddyshack.
