Trees line the deserted sidewalk,

their leaves in vibrant hues,

hiding the chirping birds from sight.

Where are the people?

Why are the stores shuttered?

What secrets are we not being told?

Should we leave this town,

or wait for nightfall?

For then, we’ve been told,

the town of Oasis lets loose.

The original residents will

come down from their hill.

Will we see the famous dark shadows

swoop down upon the town?

Do we want to see them?

Be careful what you wish for.

For The Dead love to play.

      I agree. I have a weird imagination. I made a perfect town in my book and then I put in vampires.

      Thanks for the compliment. I hope you enjoy the book. It doesn’t have pictures like this to draw out the story, but I try to describe the town. Susanne
