1003 - That Sinking Feeling

Haiku Horizons prompt: sink

That Sinking Feeling.

Life is a rough sea.
Battered from every side
We sink.  Or we swim.

Facades crack open.
What we see is frightening;
It makes our hearts sink.

Dishes fill the sink.
Flotsam of a night well spent.
It is a cheap price.

  1. Sometimes I feel like the flotsam (and the jetson) of life... Not sinking, not swimming but floating.

  2. I think as I sink, we've covered them all.

  3. Beautifully crafted set of haiku.

  4. I refuse to go under - I refuse to sink!

    Which reminds me I must remove the refuse from the sink!


You've come this far - thank you.
Take your time, look around,
There is lots to see.
