Poetry Day: Aestus

Aestus Definition

(I stumbled onto the word ‘Aestus’ and decided to use it.  I believe it was part of a series where I took various emotions and personified them.  First one was a ‘Fear’ poem I made in high school with the same style.)

The drive to spawn begins with me.

I am erotic.


Artists and murderers use me for their deeds.

I am forceful.


Good men twist beneath my touch.

I am overpowering.


Women call on me to give them power.

I am seductive.


This world would be so dull without me.


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.

    Wow! I never heard of that word! Good on you to create this poem based on something you learned.
