Haiku Bob: Round 12- change of scenery

change of scenery —

the first gamer

adds some colour





rolling waves —

leon breaks

the last line





pale clouds —

the Demon’s defence

wearing thin






another sunburnt Pom —

Wellingham slices through

like they’re witches hats






lapping waves…

Harry O’Lama

has come a long way






foreign sky —

the midfield finds

more space






onshore breeze stiffens —

Cloke’s bomb from 60

never off line






moving my chair

into the sun —

Krakouer improves the angle






clear horizon…

we reach the half-way point

ten and one

  1. The first lines in each verse were very good Rob.

  2. haiku bob says

    back in stockholm now, and will be out in the archipelago somewhere celebrating midsummer. without internet access or tv. so ‘in the dark’ again for this week’s game. so expect plenty of references to boating, the midnight sun, summer flowers, rotten herrings, strawberries, grilled meat and schnapps!
