#NABLOPOMO 5 Angels at Sea


A drabble tells a story in exactly 100 words. It can be used in poetry or prose. I wrote this one when my hubby nearly drowned after falling off the back of the boat on which he was fishing. 

Angels At Sea

He’s overboard in the icy choppiness of a darkening sea.  Crashing waves and roaring winds drown his cries for help. He gulps litres of ocean and begins to drown.  His finger’s broken; he can’t remove his sea-filled boots and soggy clothes but angels buoy him up.

At the harbour the skipper finds him gone.  Distraught he turns to search the wide, dark, sea. Angels guide him to his mate.

He smells the diesel, hears the engines’ chug and sees the bright search light.  Arms reach down and angels give them strength to yank him back aboard to fish another day.
