3 – 22 – featured haiku writer

in the darkest depths
confined within rusting hulks
lie watery graves
© Ken Gierke / rivrvlogr 2018

Here is the fourth haiku from our featured haiku writer, Ken Gierke. Time spent on or near the water has always been important to Ken. In a past life that meant boating and scuba diving. Today it means kayaking or walking along a river or stream. It may even mean sitting on a shoreline, writing poetry. Don’t forget to follow Ken at Rivrvlogr

Again, this haiku stayed with me from the first reading; such a dark scene, chilling and eerie. And I love the way Ken shows, rather than tells.
This haiku is part of my OCEAN series.

    Reminds me of a museum in Wisconsin that had computer mapping of the sunken ships in Lake Michigan 😉

    OCEAN is the current theme at Pure Haiku, where my poem is featured today.
