Breathing Fresh Air

Submitted by Carrie.


Where’s your reality

Amongst the chaos

Of neon lights

And psychedelic dreams?

Shadows from concrete

Hiding the sun,

Stifling air

Burns at my lungs.

The future is now,

But the path never clear,

What are we all doing

All day in here?

Apologies to strangers,

Through crowded malls

Where are their smiles,

Where is my own?

Go on, take a drive

To where things are green,

The air is fresh,

And you can feel the wind.

It’s cool on your face,

And fills your being

With a sense of relief,

Suddenly seeing.

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.

  1. Sounds refreshing. 🙂

  2. I’m not much into poetry but this was easy on the voice and eyes. The imagery is lovely.
