Poetry Day: Beauties and Beasts

Universal Monsters

(Think I was trying to write about the Windemere orcs here.  This one is definitely a big mystery.)

Opposites in nature

Attracted to their cores

The genders

Like night and day

Differences dueling

In an endless dance

Where one is nothing

Without the other


Hairy beasts

With eyes composed of want

Ready for action

To impress the other side

Physical trials

Forged of pure testosterone

Designed with little thought


Silken sylphs

Watching the bestial acts

From corners of their eyes

Playing games

Scarring hearts

Leaving flesh intact

The feminine animal

Hidden by the goddess guise


Strength of men

Bring power to the floor

Grace of women

Enough to tame the beast

The demur

Drawn to the brash

Burning in the heat

Continuing the dance of natures

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.

    This will be great to bring out each year at Halloween. Like “Monster Mash.”
