Haiku Bob – Round 4: the probability of falling leaves

 

last gasp win
bringing up the lot
about an old love

 

 

 

intercept mark
another look
at the moon

 

 

 

errant short passing
all these pieces of my life
leading nowhere

 

 

 

no goals
the probability
of falling leaves

 

 

 

she says ‘I do’
we agree to forget about
the result

 

 

 

final siren
the whisky’s grip
on my chest

 

 

 

wedding reception
news of the win flows through
the champagne
