Haiku Bob – Round 16: ghost gum

 

 

narrow lead the night moves closer

 

 

 

 

ghost gum

the full-forward

goalless

 

 

 

 

 

night deepens

finding it hard to find

the ball

 

 

 

 

two goals seven

in a half

winter lingers

 

 

 

 

sudden downpour

one goal after

another

 

 

 

 

another defeat

I wonder if my daughter believes

in me

 

 

 

 

evidence

of how hard I took this loss

poetry books in my bed
