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

 

 

 

solstice
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
hamstrings

 

 

 

how a win
over the arch enemy
absorbs my troubles
