AFL Round 6 – Haiku Bob: distant rumble

 

 

dead leaves

we scramble the goal

that kills them off

 

 

 

traditional rivals

the bright and dark sides

of the stadium

 

 

 

Anzac Day

a Bomber blitz opens up

old wounds

 

 

 

late April

the distant rumble

of the ‘G

 

 

 

cloudless sky

the umpire asks

for clarification

 

 

 

autumn sunshine

the tattooed player’s tattoos

soften

 

 

 

last rays

Grundy splits

the middle
