end of sorrow

Anzac Day –

the sun settles

on every medal

Anzac Day crowd –

the amplification

of silence

end of sorrow Cloke kicks the first

bright autumn sun

flashes through the goals

Cloke’s banana

Toovey goals there must be something in this beer

Anzac Day –

Didak finds a gap

between bodies

watching the rain beer runs down my chin

late autumn sun Pendlebury lopes inside fifty

half in the dark

half in the light

Josh runs into goal

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.

    Soothsayer Says September Sorrow Silently Stalks Similar Senarios?

    Cheers, Phantom.

  2. Just Beautiful…

    looks like they’re sticking with september for 2011. so the Official Observance Of October Omnipotence will have to wait.
