AFL Round 23 – Collingwood v North Melbourne (Haiku Bob): The softest of frees

Spring
all the colours
in the crowd

 

 

fluffy clouds
the softest
of frees

 

 

dead rubber
all the goals
from tight angles

 

 

drifting petals
Didak one way
then the other

 

 

clouds come and go
the pace of Pendlebury
deceptive

 

 

nowhere to turn faking a handpass

 

 

we reach September
with nothing
but hope
