Haiku Bob Round 2: waiting for the moon






warm up –
Leon practices kicking
opportunistic goals






my entire life
coming here not knowing
what will happen






waiting for the moon –
we can’t get it out
of the middle






daylight savings ends –
Collingwood whittles away
the light






approaching dusk…
the moment between
winning and losing






shades of pink
in the ghost gum –
Josh faces the dying light






my life in the balance Leon makes it a one-point game






after I’m done
rationalizing the loss
we win






last gasp win beer stains no regrets
