Haiku Bob – Round 8: moments that linger

 

set shot —

among all these people

the silence

 

 

 

 

 

scores level

the same look

on everyone’s faces

 

 

 

 

 

 

the game slows

I imagine myself

out there

 

 

 

 

 

 

leaves fall

Pendlebury works with the time

he has left

 

 

 

 

 

two goals down

the sound of an approaching

nightmare

 

 

 

 

 

tight finish

each possession a story

yet to be told

 

 

 

 

 

 

narrow win

the moments

that linger
