Haiku Bob- the twirling sherrin



footy season begins
all the teams freshly
tattooed




first game of the year –
Ball tackles
without hesitation




umpire’s whistle –
side by side
fingers point together




crisp autumn shadows –
they answer each one
of our goals




feeling closer
to home –
Cloke shanks one




sun slips through clouds
Pendlebury finds himself
on the other side




Swan again –
the Sherrin must be
a lung




northern winter
struggling to find my rhythm
Daisy fluffs a mark




the partial reality
of a live stream –
Harry loses his man




sun reflected
on the twirling Sherrin
Krakouer’s goal

    HB,

    great start to the season. Got a feeling that I’ll be seeing Krakouer’s name a fair bit in your poems this year. Go Pies!
