Haiku Bob – Round 5: one slow moment

Anzac Day –
our front line
in tatters
 
 
 
 
 
Last Post –
pondering for one slow moment
things that might kill us
 
 
 
 
 
scattered showers –
no connection between players
and coach
 
 
 
 
 
stories of war –
the unthinkable plans
in the coaches’ box
 
 
 
 
 
rain drops –
no two blunders
alike
 
 
 
 
 
leaves fall –
the game plan
escapes me
 
 
 
 
 
trailing badly –
Howe’s mark somehow
beautiful
