Haiku Bob – Round 20: beautiful and all


heading to the ‘G

the same smoke

on my jacket






in need of spring

a brief purple patch

in front of goal





it’s beautiful and all

the late winter sun

but Grundy’s goal





10 goals clear

she licks pie sauce

from every finger




predictable win

I hug her anyway

my only child





percentage booster

still I didn’t win

the lottery





lingering winter

beating the bottom team

barely registering
