Round 18 – Haiku Bob (with fiftieth birthday words)

 

 

winter mist –

the whole crowd

takes a deep breath

 

icy afternoon

news of a bad injury

increases the cold

 

four goals down

the tickets

non-refundable

 

blossoms

slowly start to open…

last quarter comeback

 

upset win

the aftertaste

of tipping against us

 

my team wins

but still

all these issues

 

50th birthday –

wondering if there’s still time

for Collingwood
