Haiku Bob – Round 5: A Different Pitch


Anzac Day ~

walking to the ground focused

on what we don’t have




the packed crowd

Autumn sun



8 goal quarter ~

only the sun

more fantastic



goal on debut ~

the crowd reaches

a different pitch



stirring up the crowd the umpire



Autumn afternoon ~

the crowd watches one side

give way



10 goals up

the win means nothing ~

Anzac Day



Anzac Day ~

still all the things

we can’t talk about

    “ANZAC Day-
    still all the things
    we can’t talk about”

    Never seen it so succinctly explained. Maybe the best bit you’ve written Bob.
