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.
