AFL Round 5 – Collingwood v North Melbourne: in sun or shade


Easter Saturday

the untrustworthiness

of a half-time lead




another autumn

last season

that was a free kick




Easter Saturday

I look to the heavens

as Cloke lines up for goal




leaves fall the lightest of touches creates a goal




shadows from end to end an unbroken passage of play




autumn light

in sun or shade

Beams flitting




autumn dusk

the dwindling crowd

at ease
