Haiku Bob – Round 18: tail end of winter

 

winter clouds thicken
before we know it
8 goals down

 

 

tail end of winter
our only goal
this quarter

 

 

wet with dew
players slide
towards defeat

 

 

defeat certain –
with what life remains
I pour another drink

 

 

my team loses
I stare
at the moon

 

 

winning, losing
winning, losing
football in July

 

 

winter rain
this latest loss
soaks everything
