The Sighişoara Citadel is one of the most beautiful citadels in Europe.
Sighişoara is situated on the Târnava Mare River, in the historic region of Transylvania. The city is know to Hungarians as “Segesvár” and to the Germans as “Schäßburg”.
I have been to many cities in my country, but I have to say that Sighişoara is one of the most beautiful cities of Romania. The Sighişoara Citadel is registered in the UNESCO world heritage. The citadel was built in the 12th century. In the 15th – 16th century, Sighişoara became an important political, economical and cultural center. The defensive wall with a length of 930 m, 14 defense towers and 5 artilery bastions used to protect the city. There are still 9 towers and two bastions.

LOST IN END HOUSE

Lost in End House

We’ve come for a party.
But no one is here to greet us.
The candles have led us to a door.
A door down to the basement.
A door that has locked behind us.
We’re trapped.

Circular saws and pointy cages 

are descending from the basement ceiling.
The floor is filling up with water.
Where are our friends?

Are they facing similar threats upstairs?

I can feel the cold wrapping around me.
The darkness is thick and heavy.
The water is reaching my knees.
Two of my friends have made it across.
Will I make it through the saws and cages?

What does the crystal ball reveal?
Shana is too afraid to find out.
Evil walks the street of Oasis.
Night brings darkness and shadows.

Her cards reveal death in an unnatural form.
What does the future hold for the innocent
residents and tourists?
Come and find out.

THE DEAD GAME

ONLY THE DEAD KNOW





We might look human
but we’re not.
We might act human
but we love to kill.
Our fearless leader
shows no mercy.
Who is he?
Will he show his face?
Only The Dead know.

AN OASIS TO HELL




Beauty marred by death.
An oasis scarred by evil and murder.
Oasis, Florida promises sunshine and beaches
but delivers death and destruction.
Do you still want to visit?
We’ll be waiting.

THE DARK FOREST

Come and visit. Follow the line of trees. Where do you think it leads? Deep into a forest. Down a dark road to a haunted house. You will never know unless you start walking. Ignore the moans and screams, it’s just the animals. The howling are from a pack of wild dogs. They like people very much. It is safe to walk farther on. Don’t look back, face forward, and walk. Soon you’ll be reaching your destination. Be prepared for anything. Don’t be afraid. Anything is a possibility.

Come and visit us.
Follow the line of trees.
Where does it lead?
Deep into a forest.
Down a dark road.
Ignore the moans and screams.
They are just animals.
A pack of wild dogs are howling.
They love people.
It is safe for you to walk into the forest.
Don’t look back.
Face forward and walk.
Soon you’ll be reaching your destination.
Be prepared for anything.
Don’t be afraid.
A party at the deserted End House
is waiting for you.
And so are The Dead.

NOUNOUS–THE IMPATIENT MALTESE

My favorite picture of my Maltese, Nounous.
He is waiting for my daughter
to come home from New York City.
The train whistles.
He searches for the train.
He waits impatiently by the car window.
The train pulls into the station. 
The doors pass by, one by one.
They are moving too fast for him 
to see his beloved friend.
The train stops.
The doors open.
He sees her.
He howls, 
pawing at the window.
He is still not sure.
He’s waiting for her to walk closer.
She stops beside the car window 
and shouts,”Nounous I’m home.”
He jumps up and down, 
woofing with joy.
She is home.
