Haiku Bob – Round 14 – out of the blue


pale sun
struggling to break through
their defensive line




icy wind
the sculptured bodies
of footy players




not playing that well
or that bad




dead leaves
clinging stubbornly –
they get a goal back




overcast –
out of the blue
a speccy




tearing wind –
not one but both




how a win
over the arch enemy
absorbs my troubles
