round 5 – haiku bob – the last second

 

Anzac Day
one grey cloud
covers the sky

 

space closing at the last second Swan’s handpass

 

fine rain
a snap for goal
brushes the post

 

cloudburst the ball belted one end to the other

 

autumn mist a handpass without looking

 

cloud trapped sun
Collingwood leading
the smother count

 

the first gamer
runs the length of the ‘G
without touching it

 

rain mixes with dew
the ball spills
in the square
