The intrepid explorer left in icy cold
cold enough to make him gasp
cold to the core of his being.
cold to freeze the blood
cold enough til frostbite
iced the loss of toes.
Days would pass in limbo—
the snare of inactivity
fought by slapping lifeless limbs.
Remembering the pause of childhood,
he prayed in fever for angels to save him.
Alas the dial of fortune passed him by
to crumble to dust. He explored no more.
This week’s wordle words are:
gasps, dial, left , angels, slap, snare,
dust, remember, loss, pause days, cold
