Round 4 haiku: reeling them in

distant thunder

Rocca lugs his thighs

to the square

*

*

rain soaked shoes

while they dry

abusing the umps!

*

*

half moon

our defence also

sliced in half

*

*

between scudding clouds the moon and Pendlebury

*

*

half-time cigarette

a long sigh joins

the leaden sky

*

*

after heavy rain

reeling them in

goal by goal

*

*

goal from sharp angle

the roll of cheers from stand

to stand

*

*

departing rain

Presti & Harry see off thoughts

of a goal

*

*

game-saving tackle the bar door slams shut

*
