Mythology in the Shadows

Yahoo Image Search

Centuries ago
The gods and goddesses played
Controlling nature
Answering mortal questions
And punishing at whims
A deity for every aspect
That life threw into the path
Lording over monsters and heroes
To teach lessons
The beloved fables of their day
*
Now they are fodder
For fiction writers and dreams
Inspiring tales
And plastered as logos
With very little of their luster
Fallen from religion
To mythology
No more than a class
To get college credit
Which path will be the next to fall?

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.
