Haiku Bob – Round 18 – all the way home

six goals up –
sunlight floods
the forward line



gusty breeze –
just as the crowd dies down
another goal



longer days
what DeGoey can now do



contrails –
so many routes
to goal



late winter –
more and more stars
in our line-up



winter evening –
the win follows us
all the way home

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.


  1. In much the same way
    as we cry to the Heavens (“Yeehhhs”)
    as a (Magpie) goal flies through;

    So your as ever poignant haiku echo
    the heart-warming feelings that resonate
    – long after the final siren.

  2. The Rhymer says

    Love your work Bob
