Round 22 – Haiku Bob – filling holes


first-half deluge

the captain

keeps us afloat





wet day

the trample of feet

in the goal square






defenders busy

filling holes





heavy rain

hard to see the end

of our slump





one way traffic

a dead branch caught

in the stream





another injury

the coach’s disfigured






after the rain

a goal lights up

our chances





last quarter

time slows down

the winning goal





spring puddles

players drink up

a surprise win
