AFL Round 14 – Haiku Bob – Darkness Spills

 

 

sunset sky

the sound of cheering

for the other team

 

 

 

 

passing clouds

now and then lifting my head

to see Cloke take a mark

 

 

 

 

winter winds

the noise the stadium makes

when we hit the front

 

 

 

 

winter equinox

this game

could go either way

 

 

 

 

winter sun

barely visible

Jessie quiet again

 

 

 

 

shortest day

the giant ruckman

can’t get going

 

 

 

 

darkness spills –

fans crowd

the exits

  1. As a neutral I enjoyed watching Saturday’s game (too wet for golf in Perth). At least I now understand the origin of “a big Jessie”.
