Haiku Bob – Round 12: Chasing shadows


Queen’s Birthday holiday ~

no one home

at full forward





another missed chance

leads to a goal ~

burning the candle

at both ends





winter haze ~

making all the right moves

in my head





winter gloom ~

struggling to see

where the next goal will come





winter rain ~

all the tackles noticeably







floodlights on ~

the whole team now

chasing shadows






after the loss

the club theme song

on someone’s ringtone
