Haiku Bob – Round 10 – undeniable silence

 

win against the bottom team

the stadium half-full

and half-empty

 

 

 

 

first bounce –

seagulls skirt

the centre square

 

 

 

 

lull in the game –

empty seats where only the rain

speaks

 

 

 

 

cloud blunt sun –

one handball then another

until it’s gone

 

 

 

 

shot from right in front –

the undeniable silence

of a miss

 

 

 

 

sun pokes through

once in a while a kick

finds its target

 

 

 

 

sunbeams –

somehow from that angle

a goal

 

 

 

 

winter showers –

in patches the game

we came to see

    onya, Dips.
    I don’t think I was the only one who found it utterly underwhelming.
    If you look at the demeanor of the two coaches in the post-match press conferences, Bucks looked like the losing coach.

    HB.
