Yethys

They are the building blocks

For other walks of life

Harvested by many

Without the serpentine Yethys

Blatherhorn Vale would vanish

Scales of gold

Covering a body

Of twisting muscle

Echoing flashes of sunlight

Beneath the watery surface

Eyes of crimson

On a head without a mouth

They squirm among the rocks

Risking all

To gain some precious warmth

Upon the rising of the moon

The river writhes

As the Yethys touch the surface

Feeding on the cosmic light

And glistening beneath the stars

Spawning with the dawn

Eggs sink to the mud

Hatching by noon

And joining the school

To feed the life of Blatherhorn Vale

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.

    • Coming from you that’s an epic compliment. I’ve been dabbling more and deciding to release a small poetry collection that I’ve had sitting around probably spurred me on. All I need is cover art and the little experiment into poetry publishing will be ready to go.
