Rescued, Didn’t Sink

Inspired by the prompt at https://haikuhorizons.wordpress.com/

So close to sinking

River’s high-rise, current fast

Pulse tastes coppery

~

Despair pounds dully

Dog-paddling near rocky bank

So close to sinking

~

Fear’s pulse, copper’d day

Sweet Death, taste tempts—white-feathered

Flash—I didn’t sink
