haiku bob round 4: faint stars

first tackle –
the sun
ducks its head

night comes –
Harry closes up
a gap

clods of dirt fly in Daisy’s blazing path

balmy night
all our mistakes

evening of faint stars
Leon misses
and misses again

something unremarkable
sparks a sudden flood
of goals

fingertipper –
Leon’s grab
nicks the moon

looks left, looks right
gets tackled

Cloke lines up –
does he hold his breath
