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.

HAMMOCK

No automatic alt text available.

 

Calming blue waters.

Soft white sand.

Reclining on a hammock.

Enjoying the sunshine.

The bright blue sky.

The quiet.

Until—

Darkness descends upon us.

The trade winds turn violent.

Sand flies in our faces.

Rooftops fly above our heads.

We make a mad dash to town.

The sun hides her face.

Lightning joins the winds.

Where to hide?

The Town Hall waits.

Its front door stands open.

Inside is dark and quiet.

What awaits us now?

Windows shatter.

Shrieks fill the rooms.

Shadows fly by the tall windows.

We’re doomed.

 

THE DEAD GAME

TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE

TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE

Palm trees waving in the breeze.

A taste of salt water in the air.

Calm waters in blues and greens.

Lush greenery as far as the eye can see.

Too good to be true?

Does a place like this exist?

It does exist in Oasis, Florida.

A small community nestled on the beach.

Brilliant white sand sparkles in the afternoon sun.

Tourists sunbathe alongside the pool of the Oasis Hotel.

But at night everything changes.

Gone is the feeling of peace and serenity.

Gone are the warm trade winds.

Instead, cold winds bring with them dark shadows.

Dark shadows bringing evil and fear.

The Dead have come to town.

TROPICAL PARADISE

Oasis offers a tropical paradise.

Palm trees swaying in the breeze.

Bodies lying in the hot sun.

Baking to their hearts’ content.

Cool water to soothe their flesh.

Fresh water or salt on display.

The night brings the trade winds.

Accompanied by dark shadows.

Visitors to the Florida town.

Ready to play their nightly games.

A game for one or two.

It’s all up to you.

THE DEAD GAME

TAKE ME AWAY

TAKE ME AWAY

Take me away to better times.
To sun-drenched beaches.
To waving palm trees.
To rolling waves.
To better places.
To warm trade winds.
To white-sand beaches.
To bright sunshine.
To us.
