haiku bob: clear above the clouds

bringing autumn
tackle by tackle
to the Blues

a mountain
clear above the clouds –
Dawes marks again

tumbling leaves –
Ball turns himself
inside and out

down on form Leon chases some hidden goal

a row of Blues
neatly laid out
for Didak’s trickery

pack forms –
Swan ducks his head
into the cloud

the swirl of leaves –
Pendlebury pauses
in the torrent

autumn sun sinks fast Blues within three

the crowd saves up its voice for a bolt from Harry

Cloke’s bomb
lands in the mulch of beer cups
and song

  1. John Butler says


    The Pies certainly did bring it tackle by tackle.

    Lovely stuff.

  2. HB – a mulch of beer cups and song – sounds like a Collingwood rabble !!
