deeper into spring

spring sunset
the difference
a goal makes
freshly cut fields
Swan feeds
on the MCG
then sun
then cloud
yet to hit our stride
looking for the angle
Krakouer turns his back
to the goals
a gap in the clouds
Wellingham catches the sun
and kicks the goal
lead starts to dwindle
sitting on
this beer
new growth
the youngest man
seals the game
late sun burst
Ball kicks us deeper
into spring

About rob scott

Rob Scott (aka Haiku Bob) is a peripatetic haiku poet who calls Victoria Park home. He writes haiku in between teaching whisky and drinking English, or something like that.


  1. Spring is sprung
    the grass is rizz
    I wonder if
    those Magges fizz?

  2. G’day HB.

    Love this haiku. Some ripper lines (apologies if this not the correct terminology).

    Lead dwindles can also increase sip frequency.

  3. thanks flynny.
    yes – they’re lines.
    lines of a haiku.
    each haiku is three lines.
    and each haiku is part of a sequence of haiku (this week, there are 8 in the sequence)
    hope this clears it up.

    true about sip frequency in tight situations, flynny.
    but, in my experience it can go both ways.
    i sometimes get frozen to the spot with tension.
    or simply get transported into a state of paralysed rapture.
    like watching nadal and djokovic the other night.


  4. Feathers flutter
    Magpie surge
    Eagles struggle
    Premiers surge

    Ending flaky
    Hearts like peas
    Coaching torment
    Avian disease?

  5. Dang Haiku infidels
