AFLW Round 3 – Haiku Bob: just a few points


breezy shadows

a magpie on the wing






lingering summer

the pounding of women hunting

the Sherrin






sunshine fills

the scoring end





clouds intersect

the gap between the two teams






watching on tv

I let the dog know what I think

of the umpires





scattered light

down to just a few points

between us





sun so bright

before it fades

we lose at the death

    I love the haiku about your dog. Classic. Good to be able to share the frustration in the moment.
