Haiku Bob: Round 6 – a shade more


after my team wins

I tell her I can play





leaves aflutter

the forward line

looking lively




wind gusts –

the back and forth

of the Sherrin


Autumn sky –

a shade more black and white

in the crowd




commentators on mute –

Pendlebury narrates

the win




burst of sunshine

Collingwood briefly

back to life




MCG dusk –

players jumping

at shadows




Autumn rain

drinking in

my football team’s win


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. The joy of haiku is how an economy of words says so much. Images more than descriptors.
    Loved the playing guitar and Pendlebury narrates verses.
    Thanks HB

  2. Another Brilliant Set of Haikus.

  3. MGLFerguson says

    Ball rolled on the ground,
    favored men couldn’t grab it:
    Selwood under wraps.

  4. MGLFerguson says

    Flat, slow and fumbly’s
    no way to play footy, son.
    Geelong lose again.
