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
