As you maybe know my country, The Netherlands, lost the semi-final of the worldchampionship soccer yesterday (July 9th) after the penalty shoot-out against Argentina. Ofcourse I was a bit sad, but on the other hand I am very proud on our National soccer team … they did great and I have enjoyed the games.
Yesterday, after the game, I went outside and I saw an almost full moon coloring orange and I thought ‘even she, the moon, is proud on our Orange Lions’. It inspired me to compose the next haiku:
almost full moon
colors orange behind thin clouds –
It’s just a haiku to give my proudness of being a Dutch guy words and a great feeling. The worldchampion-dream is over, but I am still a proud Dutchman.
Have a great weekend.
