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







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
