Haiku Bob: so little done

 

magnolias
already falling

another
bright start

quickly
dies off

 

 

as if the game depended on it another tackle missed

 

so
much
effort

to
get
so
little

done
Dawes

 

 

different time zone we play for a quarter

 

 

afternoon stillness
barely a heartbeat
around the stoppages

 

 

whether
I look
or not

Cloke
there

but
not
there

 

 

long spring afternoon
doubts begin to swell
with the buds

  1. Brothers go to Mothers, eh Haiku. I was waiting for the Henry Mancini backing.

  2. haiku bob says:

    reckon ‘Peter Gunn’ would be more appropriate backing music for collingwood’s search for a functional forward line.

  3. ‘Laurel and Hardy’ theme?
