‘Fiction In A Flash Challenge’ Week #17 @pursoot #IARTG #ASMSG #WritingCommunity #poetry #haibun

Here’s my take on Suzanne Burke’s ‘Fiction In A Flash Challenge Week #17 NEW Image Prompt. This picture took me all over the place, including a short story and different types of poetry. This Haibun Poem is the one that called to me today.


The fog penetrated my skin, adding heaviness to my existence. The furious waves crashing against the shore fueled my anger. The salty air was bitter in my lungs, making each breath a battle. Alone, I pushed through the frigid sands, going nowhere, until I couldn’t take another step. I sat down on a flat rock and waited for the pain to end. This went on ceaselessly until I caught a glimmer in the haze. A bottle had washed ashore at my feet.

Foggy depression

A healing message offered

Remember, you’re loved.
