round 14 – one touch at a time



the night drifts along until Didak






another night

punctuated

by Harry’s stampedes






Jolly sidesteps the night all to himself






first goal in an hour

followed by another

a minute later






World Cup month

and now Daisy tries

a scissor kick






night sounds a smother ricochets off the roof






Swan up the ground and back one touch at a time






night chill

in everything except

Dawes’ hands






packed footy train –

scoring a seat ends a night

of ridiculous ease

    This is not my work. Tim Shiel, RRR Breakfaster wrote this and sent it to Harry O, the subject. Was disappointed he didn’t get a response, so he read it on the radio this morning. I thought you might enjoy it.

  2. Harry O was very busy at the Digital Sports Summit.

    Wonderful haikus up above!

    These ones probably capture the spirit of the match:

    “first goal in an hour

    followed by another

    a minute later

    World Cup month

    and now Daisy tries

    a scissor kick”

    and so do the one-liners.

    Adelaide:
    Thank you.

    Fits:
    I missed Tim’s contribution so thanks for sharing it. He has summed up Harry well.
