Haiku Bob – Round 10 – Same old moon


watching the game ~

soon settling into my fear

of losing




end to end ~

the Sherrin threads

the night




late autumn

the forward line

in pieces




on the sideline

injured players

glow in the gloom




half moon ~

the joy and the pain

of a close finish




same old moon ~

we give up

an early lead




autumn darkness ~

our latest defeat

has the run of the house
