Haiku Bob – Round 8 – wherever you look


sunny afternoon
wherever you look


bright sunshine ~
only footballers would try
to look invisible


leaves in all directions
defenders having trouble
defending themselves


day moon
makes it look easy


no pen and paper
the goalsneak scores a goal
without words


10 goals up
we start talking again
about the future


autumn dusk
a goal fails to rouse
a single fan
