Poem: Sunken by Mark Tulin


in the shallow waters

of a family

there is a sunken


weighed down

by a heavy past

and a capsized



by the present,

fearful of the future

unable to float

to the top. 


Freelance writer, poet, yogi and photographer from Santa Barbara, California. I write and take pictures about a variety of topics, from my early childhood in Philadelphia, to my years as a family therapist, and finally to my soul-searching years in California. The things that move me may have a humorous or serious content or both. Either way, I hope my poetry, pictures and stories resonate with you.
