Haiku Bob – Round 15: gap in the woods


in the woods
filled by kangaroos



dense fog
a perfectly weighted kick
floats out of bounds



winter stillness –
waiting for the forward line
to do something



staring into my beer
imagining the next



waning moon
this game slipping
further away



heavy defeat
in the end my kid happy
we didn’t go



trying to think
where it all went wrong
my dog licks my head
