haiku bob: more than daylight

hawks glide
casting shadows
across the ‘G

 

bright winter sun –
more than daylight
between the two teams

 

static forward line winter stillness

 

ice cold hands
even in the sunshine –
the slumping star

 

for a moment
nothing
but Rioli

 

heavy defeat looms my life too lacks direction

 

packed ‘G
again filled
with emptiness

  1. Christ, that’s EXACTLY how I saw it.

    I just couldn’t express it so beautifully.

    But aren’t lives that lack direction only one win away from being back on track?

  2. haiku bob says:

    that might be true MOC, but if continually bombing the ball into a dysfunctional and semi-interested forward line results in a win this week, my life will lack something else, enchantment perhaps.

    thanks for your comments.
