summertime

I float in a swimming pool.

I feel relaxed and cool.

A breeze fills the air.

No one else swims near.

Two leaves drift beside me.

I turn my head to see.

Two whales grin back at me.

I’m in the big blue sea.

I jump into the pool.

I feel like a fool.

My mind played tricks on me.

I’m an author, you see.

SWEPT AWAY

Lights twinkle on the horizon.

A horizon tinted pink by the night.

I walk past the mosaic trimmed pool.

A trade wind follows me.

I’m being swept away.

By the view.

By the lights.

By the beauty.

A contented sigh drifts on the wind.

FRIDAY THE 13th

 

 

End House sits at the edge of a cliff,

overlooking the raging waters of the Atlantic Ocean.

A party is being given on Friday the 13th.

Black invitations have been sent out.

Guests are arriving to meet the unknown host.

Past owners have disappeared under mysterious circumstances.

Linda and her friends have been hesitant to attend.

But their curiosity has brought them here this night.

No one greets them at the front door.

Gargoyles grin from their positions on the staircase.

All is dark except for the lit sconces and candles.

The flickering sconces reveal a hallway to the right.

Candles along the banister show the way up.

Should they stay or leave before it’s too late?

Should they check the outdoor pool

or the lavish pool upstairs?

It makes no difference.

Their path has been pre-determined.

This path leads in only direction.

To death.

THE DEAD POOL

The sun hides its face.

Silence reigns supreme.

The winds pick up their pace.

Palm trees shake their leaves.

The hotel stands deserted.

Flapping sounds fill the air.

Dark shadows join the fray.

I can see his icy stare.

THE SHADOWS OF THE DEAD

Bat in pool

THE SHADOWS OF THE DEAD

I am sitting by the Oasis Hotel
One warm and sunny day.
The palm trees are waving
In the soft sea breeze.
A shadow swoops down low,
right near my head.
I duck down,
With terror filling my heart.
Are The Dead now appearing
during the daylight hours?
I’ve only seen them in the dark
After they rise up from ocean.
Look!
It’s coming out of the pool.
It’s standing up.
It’s becoming taller.
Taking on a new form.
It looks human.
What’s happening to me?
What’s happening to our poor town? 
Am I hallucinating?
The Dead have taken over.
