Haiku Bob – Round 19 – in a patch of sunlight

 

deep twilight 

the last few claps

from the grandstand

 

 

 

winter’s day

in a patch of sunlight

Darcy’s mark

 

 

 

at the end

of my tether

a flukey goal

 

 

 

practising

the goal he missed

spring thaw

 

 

 

close finish

the crowd all pointing

their heads

 

 

 

dusk

will that be today’s

last goal?

 

 

 

spring nears

the melancholy

of an inconsequential win
