Haiku Bob – Round 3 – murmurings of war


bright start

to the first quarter –

Autumn moon



clear skies –

the drop punt

splits the middle



murmurings of war –

the full-back loads up

a torpedo




we give up the lead

Autumn dusk



falling leaves –

all those goals

we should’ve kicked



final siren –

the brilliance

of the moon



one point win

all the mistakes

we forget
