Haiku Bob – Round 3 – murmurings of war

 

bright start

to the first quarter –

Autumn moon

 

 

clear skies –

the drop punt

splits the middle

 

 

murmurings of war –

the full-back loads up

a torpedo

 

 

gradually

we give up the lead

Autumn dusk

 

 

falling leaves –

all those goals

we should’ve kicked

 

 

final siren –

the brilliance

of the moon

 

 

one point win

all the mistakes

we forget
