Round 2 – Haiku Bob: Rooted in the square


autumn dusk ~

the full forward

rooted in the square




autumn ~

a whole quarter

without a goal




tinged leaves ~

little bits

of good play




goalless quarter ~

still roaming half-forward

the ghost of Daicos




floodlights ~






trembling leaves ~

the winger sits under

a hospital pass




autumn night ~

the sound of the last

  1. Well played HB. Proves my theory that a losing game provides the wistful ennui necessary for good haiku. Should be a bottler season for the magpies (haiku).

  2. Thanks, PB. I think.
