Round 21 – Melbourne v Collingwood: Haiku Bob – still some dreamers

 

 

 

winter drizzle

starved forwards skirmish

for crumbs

 

 

 

 

 

cold winter light

every shot for goal

misses

 

 

 

 

 

even though

I’ve heard it before

the first goal

 

 

 

 

 

still single

this week I fall in love

with Brodie Mihocek

 

 

 

 

 

winter rain

I wipe my hands

after Billy drops the mark

 

 

 

 

 

swaying branches

every now and then

a pass connects

 

 

 

 

 

scattered crowd

still some dreamers

among us
