Haiku Bob – Round 20 – lessens the dread

 

 

 

floodlight slides off the felled player’s sweat

 

 

 

 

dead rubber

all these mistakes

I’ve seen before

 

 

 

 

battle

of the cellar dwellars

our shadows outrun theirs

 

 

 

 

a win

over another also-ran

lessens the dread

 

 

 

 

relationship trouble

a battling win

speaks to me

 

 

 

 

gnarly trees –

the rugged defender prepares

to enter traffic

 

 

 

 

10 goals up

against the bottom team

my daughter’s smile
