Haiku Bob – Round 16: light years


final siren –

still hope

for me





full moon –

light years away

from a flag





empty nest –

no one to kick to

at full-forward





grey clouds –

Collingwood neither black

or white





MCG twilight –

the gathering gloom

in the coaches box





clouds roll in

our slender lead






though I know

it’s coming the jolt

of the siren
