Round 1 – Haiku Bob: outgoing sky

 

 

pre-match
the stars appear
one at a time

 

 

outgoing sky
Daicos
sparkles

 

 

no sound at the ‘G
except stunned silence
stretcher called

 

 

half-time deficit
my worries reach the bar
before me

 

 

sweaty moon
no one can land a finger
on Pendlebury

 

 

still finishing my sentences Daicos

 

 

morning after
the light still on
inside
