haiku bob – round 7: flesh and shadows



moonlit night –
a magpie strolls
into the goal square



space between stars –
magpie defenders
guarding it



swirling breeze Didak through the flap of seagulls



squeezed on the left
checked on the right
Harry Obama steers a course
through the middle



floodlit flesh
and shadows climb over Jolly
umps wave play on



starlight
Cloke handballs 40 yards
just to do it



dewfall…
Daisy flicks it
to his blind spot



days start to blend
approaching winter…
another 10 goal win



on top of the ladder
my problems
put in their place

    Rob,

    you are like the effect on sea level from global warming. Steadily rising, persistent, unstopable.

    Cheers, Phantom.
