AFL Round 10 – Haiku Bob – last quarter moon



nothing separates

the two teams





heavy sky

the full forward

can’t hold it





a piece of cloud breaks off  Pendlebury breaks clear





almost winter

a matter of time

before the next dodgy free





clouds break up         Goldsack chasing, tackling





the moon

moves down the wing

‘H’ tucks it under his arm





night fall

everything rests

on the next goal





last quarter moon

we find the edge

at the death

  1. Worst haiku I have ever read.
    You were right about the dodgy 50 and frees at the end though.

  2. haiku bob says

    it was a ripping game PB.
    umps were tres ordinaire.

  3. Tom Martin says

    Forget the four points
    All Yeo wants for Christmas
    Is his two front teeth
