Haiku Bob: From the outer

autumn remains –

a few minutes left

of the low scoring game

 

away game

the ball not going

to the right spots

 

one goal down in the rain sinking lower into the sofa

 

scores level vapor rises from the outer

 

branches snap off another knee

 

thin rain

hopes of winning

appear fainter

 

glowing softly

in the floodlights

Didak’s goal
