Haiku Bob – Round 7: nature calls

 

 

nature calls

missing by moments

a much needed goal

 

 

 

 

goal fest –

almost seems alive

the opposition full-forward

 

 

 

 

 

a football match

wedged between parenting

and divorce

 

 

 

 

 

autumn colours

each goal a shade

different

 

 

 

 

 

the sound of a goal

being kicked

from an impossible angle

 

 

 

 

 

big lead

I lie to myself

that everything’s ok

 

 

 

 

 

after the win

my daughter promises to go to bed

again
