Haiku Bob – Round 15 – Steady Drip




misty rain ~

the win we’ve waited for

fails to materialise




forming clouds ~

taking up our positions

in the crowd




rain on the way ~

the ball gets flung

from end to end




sheets of rain ~

players going in and out

of the game




steady drip ~

the defender’s nose

gets strapped to his face




dark of the moon

no-one up forward

except bloody Jessie White




moon breaks through clouds ~

after all that

we lose
