Poor game turned great,
all thanks to this unexpected goal
Came quite as a surprise.

Lunch invitation
Great. High heels and make-up? No!
first nine K uphill.

Hike up from Ricken
Lunch at Tanzboden (dance floor!)
Too tired to dance though.

(Ricken 780 metres above sea level.
Tanzboden 1443 m above sea level)

First day of summer
Last week I'm in Switzerland
Belgium here I come!

No footie tonight.
Will worry the other half:
Cook potato soup.

Two nights football-less --
Read? Take a walk? Sleep earlier?
Only dream football.

went to the market
to buy lots of fruit, luscious
to eat in the heat

haiku, haiku is
so much fun to do, better
than deep discussion
