AFL Round 19 – Collingwood v Essendon: slowly finding form

 

football season –
a bleak afternoon
turns brilliant

 

 

winter clouds slowly finding form

 

 

heavy underfoot
the Bombers
losing ground

 

 

blanket of cloud
before you know it
5 goals clear

 

 

drug rumours
the Bombers
can’t settle

 

 

steady rain
Pendlebury running
smoothly

 

 

nearing spring
an old dream
returns

  1. Love the dual meanings in haiku. “Can’t settle”. “Finding form”. Context gives them so many different meanings and points of reference for the reader – footy, life and nature.
    Thanks HB
