Haiku Bob: football the ocean


pile of leaves –
the coach’s plans
all coming together


crisp afternoon –
the click
of our midfield


football the ocean Swan swims in


rustle of leaves –
the defender hears


sunlight spills
through the clouds –
Blair crumbs


broken sunlight –
Swan half in half out
of trouble


winter chill –
the lead reduced
to mind games
