Haiku Bob – Round 23 – gone too soon

 

falling petals ~

another season gone

too soon

 

 

 

lingering winter ~

nothing that resembles

a goal

 

 

 

 

gloomy afternoon ~

another kick forward

gets us nowhere

 

 

 

 

sun breaks through ~

the playmaker

centers

 

 

 

creeping shadows ~

the back six

loses its nerve

 

 

 

a goal down in the last quarter I try not to watch

 

 

 

3 point loss ~

feeling the commentators

overdo the drama

 

 

 

last game defeat

how quickly the sun

sets

 

 

 

we miss the finals ~

enough grog in the house

to kill me
