Haiku Bob – Round 22: edge of night


new buds

a teammate

for every pass




first magnolias

young forwards

stand out




edge of night ~

in the blink of an eye

Darcy Moore




distant hum ~


through traffic




night shadows

the loose forward





flying for a mark

as if summoned

by the Gods




back on the winner’s list

everything old

is new



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. Bar the penultimate ‘stanza’ (is that the right word?), my haiku would be the inverse.

    Duelling opposite haikus. I’m sure it’s been done before.

    Tromso was great Old Mate.

  2. They’re all haiku, Flynny.
    Strung together in a sequence.
    My dream is to have live haiku duelling broadcast on the big screen after each goal…I mean, in the ad breaks.
