Poem: Sunken Spirit by Mark Tulin

in the shallow waters

of a family,

there is a sunken


weighed down

by a heavy past

and a capsized


a present burdened 

by its history,

fearful of the future

unable to float

to the top.

  2. A great analogy for family relationships! Sometimes sunken treasures waiting to be found.
