Round 11 – Collingwood v Port Adelaide – Haiku Bob: Anchored in the backline

Anchored in the backline

 

 

 

 

grey day ~
the colours of the magpie
blur

 

 

the rain falls
as I watch Jessie White
miss another goal

 

 

 

scattered showers ~
our players everywhere
they shouldn’t be

wet afternoon ~
we continue our tumble
down the ladder

 

winter rain ~
the ball anchored
in the back line

 

 

 

 

 

 

after rain ~
our team making
no impression

 

 

 

 

 

 

heavy defeat ~
in the recycling
news of last week’s win
