Haikus for the (w)Rec(k)

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 In autumn’s faint dawn,
They kneel in puddled goal mouths,
Repairing their nets.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 These fishers of goals,
Threading and weaving their craft,
In lonely silence.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Soon the crowds will throng,
Cheering on the village team,
While they mark the clouds.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 In rain splashed sunset,
They bring their dripping catch home:
Ignored and alone.
