haiku bob round 4: faint stars






first tackle –
the sun
ducks its head






night comes –
Harry closes up
a gap






clods of dirt fly in Daisy’s blazing path






balmy night
all our mistakes
softened






evening of faint stars
Leon misses
and misses again






something unremarkable
sparks a sudden flood
of goals






fingertipper –
Leon’s grab
nicks the moon






old-timer
looks left, looks right
gets tackled






Cloke lines up –
does he hold his breath
too?
