Poetry Day: Day of Darkness

Yahoo Image Search

(In Windemere, there is a day where it is eternal night.  For 24 hours, there is no sunlight and undead are stronger.  Those born on this day are thought to have a powerful destiny, which can be either good or bad.  Of course, I had to do a poem on this event.)

*****

A full day
Of endless night
Covering
The entire world
As the four moons
Led by Vir
The red moon
Of purest evil
Suffocate the sun

Shadows
Once benign
Become pits of terror
As creatures
Of the breathing
And the breathless
Fearful of sun’s light
Gather
Their evil courage

Zombies stalk
The foolhardy wanderers
While Liches cast
Their spells and rituals
Demons
Summoned from
The chaotic void
Prepare to dine
On all they find

Few venture forth
And brave the day
Those that do
Are one of two
Some are brave
And overcome the darkness
Others are less able
Luckless fools
With a lack of sense

About Charles Yallowitz

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.

  3. What a fun concept, an endless night/day for monsters to run amok.
