Round 1 – Haiku Bob – remnants of last year


another crushing loss

the child in my child






a Sherrin joins

the night sky




round one

packed house music

to my ears




sultry night…

Pendlebury slows down





night sounds –

the baying crowd

ripples the stadium




a kick to tie the game equinox




dead leaves –

remnants of last year




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. Pressure cooker –
    the hunter swoops

  2. DBalassone says

    ‘Crushing loss.’ Ain’t that the truth Haiku Bob. 6 months to get over the GF, only to lose exactly the same way in Round 1.

  3. Magpies
    And old habits
    Returning to their nest

    Eagles caught
    In reflected sun
    Vulnerable to prey

  4. When asked as to when
    Sagrada Familia
    would be completed,

    Architect, Gaudi,
    said that his client was not
    in such a hurry.

    Like that grand old church,
    perhaps, too, our loyalties:
    – unfinishable …

  5. haiku bob says

    Aaahhhhhhhh 5-7-5…
    they sure were the good ‘ol days
    it counts for nothing

    about Gaudi though
    now there’s a guy who could’ve
    played for Collingwood
