The 2022 AFL Grand Final Haiku Kukai

Grand final day—
the stadium fills
with hope

Welcome to the annual celebration of Australian footy and haiku!

Calling all haiku poets and other vagabonds from every nook and cranny on the planet to participate in the Annual AFL Grand Final Haiku Kukai for 2022. This is the one day of the year when haiku poets, expert and novice, turn their Zen minds to the rip-roaring, white-knuckle, roller-coaster experience of a footy match to produce a live haiku call of the AFL Grand Final. The game kicks off on Saturday 24th September at 2.30pm AEST, but you can share your haiku anytime prior to the game.

It is a Facebook only event which you can join here. If you don’t have Facebook and are interested in getting involved, don’t worry, please feel free to write some haiku in the comments section below. They will be read I can assure you.

Like the game itself, there are no hard and fast rules for the kukai. Any style of haiku (or senryu) is acceptable. Even 5-7-5. One line or three. Just keep it nice.

So, wherever you are, whatever you’re doing, whoever you barrack for, send us some haiku of your experience of watching the game. Whether it be from inside the stadium, your couch, bed, dunny or the local pub, send us your haiku throughout the game. This is a most unique grand final experience.

Happy haiku-ing and see you at the game!

Haiku Bob.
