Lamentation Twenty

Posted in response to Mag 159, prompted by Tess Kincaid.

Haiku for a Lovesick Sailor

She shot him one glance.
Holed beneath the waterline
He sank without trace.



  1. we had sinking in our poem but for a different reason
    Nice haiku/ shot to the heart...

  2. Oh no! Will we see him again!?

  3. Love can do that to a sailor....yes.....:-)

  4. I love haiku and yours is pretty fine. I can't be gloomy today, not with the sun shinning brilliantly thorugh my kitchen window and spring in the air.

  5. I sink the poor soul's sailed his last indeed!


I welcome your comments, the gloomier the better. I don't think there's much hope, but that doesn't mean I'm not interested in what you have to say. If you expect me to approve your comment before it appears, you're about to be disappointed. Never have understood why some hypersensitive bloggers need to see what others say before they allow the comment. Poor, sensitive wee souls.
