Those Tempting Distractions

Yahoo Image Search

A twinkle to the side
Drawing your attention
Away from progress
But
It’s so enticing
Like the noises
That one needs to explore
Scents
Calling you to wander
Flickering thoughts
And expected errands
Distractions
Born from the ether
To hamper advancement
And gnaw
At your deadlines
You must refuse
Their siren song
That dances along your senses

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.
