Haiku Bob: Round 13 – the lull between goals

 
the lull between goals

 

saturday afternoon
the full forward rips the ball
from the sky

 

 

 
Didak props
the way the forward line
opens up

 

 

before and after
the final siren –
Dick’s grin

 

 

Harry begins the journey
back to where he was
before the goal

 

 

low sun
Heater snares
the last beams

 

 

longer days
goals fill the lull
between goals

 

 

 

new moon
self-belief
creeping back
