Haiku Bob – Round 9 – in the blink of an eye


the wingbeat
of magpies
end to end goal




shorter days
in the blink of an eye
Wells kicks the first




dropped mark
a moment later
another dropped mark




full moon
running rings around
their defenders




night haze –
DeGoey takes the shape
of Daicos




the rattle
of empty beer cups
consolation goals



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. Very nice, Haiku.
    I’m really liking De Goey – although I haven’t watched a full Collingwood game. He seems to kick beautiful drop punts – has a strong core and kicks through the ball.
    For me, Daicos was a master of controlling the bounce and the banana, does De Goey have this in his game too?
