Round 13 – Haiku Bob: through the lines




by the narrow defeat

I pour another wine




winter clouds ~

the occasional piece

of good play




dusk ~

De Goey weaves

through the lines




scores level

at the last break ~

half moon





nightfall ~

slowly our hopes

snuffed out




brittle leaves ~

a make or break kick

drifts wide




heading to the exit ~

the mix of chatter

with silence
