Ash Man

Pieces floating off

With every gentle breeze

Disappearing in the dark

A gradual erosion

Of a body made from ash

Crinkling with every step

Causing more to disappear

Until the stiff wind comes

And takes his form away

(April 1st Entry of Ranting Papizilla’s poetry month challenge.)

About Charles Yallowitz

Charles E. Yallowitz was born, raised, and educated in New York. Then he spent a few years in Florida, realized his fear of alligators, and moved back to the Empire State. When he isn't working hard on his epic fantasy stories, Charles can be found cooking or going on whatever adventure his son has planned for the day. 'Legends of Windemere' is his first series, but it certainly won't be his last.
