The City of Bor’Daruk

Prince of Persia City

Prince of Persia City

Upon the desert shore
Where ocean breeze meets heat
Sending sand along the street
Dunes forming in the corners
That go unnoticed
By the bustling crowds
Unburdened by their home

Stand upon the high towers
To watch the storms afar
Formless giants
Moving across the desert
Always threatening
To crash into the city walls
Yet no one fears their wrath

Contrary to the sight
Of smiling citizens and life
The desert is the harshest mistress
With creatures in the dunes
And hungry winds at every door
These people thrive
Against nature’s will

                                                                                                                                                                                                                              

This is where a bulk of the action will take place.  Tomorrow I’ll write more about this place that has only been mentioned until now.

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.
