Haiku Bob – Round 2 – Long Way From Home


cicadas ~
the crowd reaches
fever pitch



Autumn begins ~
Pendlebury drifts forward
drifts back



no moon ~
our midfield


a great goal!
but we need



nothing in it ~
the cigarette
all but ash



remote pub ~
Darcy lines up the goals
a long way from home



swaying branches ~
the ruckman throws his leg
at the ball
