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







tight finish

each possession a story

yet to be told







narrow win

the moments

that linger
