Haiku Bob – AFL Round 21 – such and such

Sunday football –
players emerge head-bowed
from their sermons



blowing a gale –
trees and forwards
stripped of life



for some
the ball goes only
where the wind wants it to



two fumbles
and suddenly Dick
in the clear



late winter squall –
smooth passing
gone with the clouds



bathed in sunshine
the game an eye-catching
bog of resignation



glare of the sun
such and such offloads it
to such and such



no wind, Leroy
doing what he does



sun sinks low
Daisy sees his chance
and leaps for it
