Round 10 – Haiku Bob: the joyful sounds


late autumn sun

the joyful sounds

of a goal





clear skies

the full-forward

marking everything



clouds dissolve ~

the goal sneak evades

a tackle






crisp day

the full-forward

splits the middle







winter looms

we start losing








winter wind

our midfield cuts loose









fading light

the loose man drops

into the hole





unfurling flowers

Fasolo’s snap floods

the senses
