AFL Round 18 – Collingwood v GWS Giants (Haiku Bob): Long way from home


sun then cloud
the good and the bad
of watching this game



threatening sky
a long kick
in hope



mood darkening
the goal umpire
doesn’t move



deep winter
the centre half forward turns
a long way from home



winter evening
the path to goal
lost in the gloom


first star finally we hit the front


pale moon shadows of their former selves

  1. Lovely HB. Thought this week’s Haiku might include the word “sphincter” somewhere.

  2. haiku bob says

    indeed Dips.
    although things were remarkably ‘relaxed’ in that area I must say.
    I think I’ve let go.
