round 5 – haiku bob – the last second


Anzac Day
one grey cloud
covers the sky


space closing at the last second Swan’s handpass


fine rain
a snap for goal
brushes the post


cloudburst the ball belted one end to the other


autumn mist a handpass without looking


cloud trapped sun
Collingwood leading
the smother count


the first gamer
runs the length of the ‘G
without touching it


rain mixes with dew
the ball spills
in the square
