Tale Weaver: Poem – Synchronocity – “A Deadly Night” #amwriting #poetry #fiction #taleweavers

Here is last week’s  Tale Weaver prompt, held by MindLoveMisery’s Menagerie. The prompt is a story about being caught in a deep freeze.

Stuck fast in this ice, no relief, 

Car pushed off he highway it’s —

Dark, cold


We’re lucky we’re uninjured that, 

We’ve signals on our smart phones; night



There’s no gas left in the tank from, 

Starting, then turning off the heat

Stars bleed


Giant glimmering balls, twinkle, 

Outside our windows; but we’re still —

Stuck here. 


We called the AMA, come find —

Us because we’re frozen; minus 



Nighttime is bitter, freezing we’re, 

Huddled beneath silver blankets, 



Then he starts shaking, lips so blue

Then he’s still; hypothermia



But the sun is rising now; we’ve —

Made it through the dark; my friend he —

Yet sleeps. 


Hearing voices outside our car, 

Come to save us now, opening —

Our doors. 


Light leaks in, such needed warmth; I —

feel my hands, shaking you awake, 

You blink
