Round 3 – Haiku Bob: sweet nothings




wet autumn night
the players soaked
in adrenaline



floodlit stadium…
the rain swirls
into itself



a rainy evening
blurs into night
we miss another goal



sidesteps in the rain…
a lullaby



newly engaged
we celebrate each goal
with a kiss



filling the silence
between goals…
sweet nothings



tense win —
learning to live
with a crowd
