Haiku Bob Rd 6: clear moments after



wet afternoon

the football used

as a lure






Johnno subbed off

the game loses a little

right-side brain





sprinting in the clear

then on meeting Luke Ball

stopped





wind-tossed rain

a perfect pass

by mistake





moon strains through clouds a goal clear





moments after

watering my dead plant

Leeroy explodes to life





the rain

lighter now

begins to waltz

– Krakouer’s goal

  1. HB – will anyone beat the Pies this year?

    Loved the dead plant line. Many people water their plants when they’re dead. Its like an apology for their lack of attention early. I read somewhere once that watering a dead plant is like sitting next to a deceased loved one, gushing tears of hurt, wishing you had been more honest with them when they were alive.
