Haiku Bob – Round 8 – blindsided

 

the moon sits

on top of the grandstand –

weight of the defeat

 

 

 

 

 

after the game

the train fills with laughter

and silence

 

 

 

 

bare trees

all day sensing

this defeat

 

 

 

 

merging clouds

a kick into the forward line

cut off

 

 

 

 

goalless quarter –

the yellow footy lost

in the sunset

 

 

 

 

blindsided

by the onset of floodlights

two quick goals

 

 

 

 

through another hole

in the back six

the moon
