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

softer

 

 

 

 

 

floodlights on ~

the whole team now

chasing shadows

 

 

 

 

 

after the loss

the club theme song

on someone’s ringtone
