You Don’t Measure Cold – Friday Fictioneers

This is the photo prompt for Madison Woods’s Friday Fictioneers.

There is no measure of cold

Ice is a sign of a lack of heat.

 

It’s not easy to talk. It used to be so warm. I can’t talk anymore, not to you. I may not be able to even look at you. It just feels so cold. I wonder How I can put it into words. Yeah, I know I can’t. I can only measure to what degree there is still heat. Maybe that’s where I start. Stop focusing on when and where thing went wrong and how long they will stay this way. There is a degree of heat left. I just can’t seem to see through the pain. You can’t measure coldness.

Friday Fictioneers – Icy Moguls

This is a photo prompt for Madison Woods’s Friday Fictioneers.  The only requirement for membership is the desire to write 100 words based upon your reaction. All are welcome, All are Judged.

The Moguls on the Way to Base Camp

 

The icy moguls were hidden under fresh powder. I had assumed that they would all send my knees to my chest, one after another, until I reached the base camp. The first hit sent loose powder into my face, happily received. The ice made a scraaaaaaape against the newly sharpened edge of my homemade skis. The ice beat the edge and my feet fell from under me. My hip bone felt the collision through the thermal underwear and ski-bibs. I got up, looked uphill. Done, I looked downhill, so far down, undone. No wedge, skis parallel, tips downhill, deep breath.
