To the Treasure Chest

Legend of Zelda . . . I’ve been using a lot from this game

Waiting within the ruins
Of a land that lost its name
To the hunger of time
You are sought by many
Who do not know
That you exist

Many have reached you
And fallen at your feet
Burying you
In a sea of bones
The fallen skulls
Staring at you with desire

Splintery lid
Rusty lock
That continues to hold tight
Traces of a pattern
Devoured by time
What secrets do you hold?

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.

    I agree with everyone! This was well done.
    I love finding treasure chests or other hidden items in games. (Of course Link finds many in his adventures.)
