AFL Round 3 – Collingwood v Hawthorn (Haiku Bob): rain clouds and hawks


early rain sweeps the ground and Pendlebury


autumn gust
Reid’s knee bends
the wrong way


autumn afternoon
the sound of Buddy’s goal
above the ‘G


rain clouds and hawks


wave after wave…
Buddy leaps over one
to make another


falling leaves
losing our grip
on Rioli


rain still falling
the back six
losing its shape


sunbeams poke through our ghost-like defence
