Haiku Bob – Round 15: gap in the woods

 

gaps
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
goal

 

 

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
