Haiku Bob – Round 16: ghost gum



narrow lead the night moves closer





ghost gum

the full-forward







night deepens

finding it hard to find

the ball





two goals seven

in a half

winter lingers





sudden downpour

one goal after






another defeat

I wonder if my daughter believes

in me






of how hard I took this loss

poetry books in my bed
