Haiku Bob – Round 7 – Whispering Gums

 

scores level ~

the stadium half in half out

of sunlight

 

 

 

 

Autumn ~

goal by goal we fall

further behind

 

 

 

 

falling leaves ~

less sure now

about the path we’re on

 

 

 

 

no way back ~

the sun slips

behind the grandstand

 

 

 

 

latest defeat ~

my wrinkles

starting to show

 

 

 

 

Autumn clarity ~

our team nothing more

than just a team

 

 

 

 

whispering gums ~

the coach fends off

sacking rumours
