100 Haiku for the Gamer’s Thumbs: 5-8

Duck Hunt Gun for the NES

Duck Hunt Gun for the NES

Body of the Game

Remember cartridge

Who evolved into a disk

Homes of hidden worlds

*

Red, White, and Yellow

The three-pronged lifeline

A snake that brings sound and sight

Curled behind the tube

You Tell Us How to Live

Bible with each game

That will tell us how to play

If we choose to read

Extra Bling for the Machine

Tools enhance the game

From laser guns to dance pads

Accessories rule

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.
