Haiku Bob – Round 5 – secretly hoping



beams of light

sunset lingers with

every goal






scattered leaves

all these goals

from unexpected places






my shout

players taking turns too

kicking goals






trees now more bare

Thomas threads one

from the pocket






goal from the boundary

instantly I’m taken back

to better times






ten goals clear

secretly hoping the neighbours hear us

having fun





morning after

a ten goal win my whisky

on the bedside table
