Droplets of glitter filled rain swept through the forgotten town.
Lost in time, bouncing off the old neglected buildings, rushing off the roofs creating a spectacular  water gown.
Drains unable to cope with the downpour, lift with the incredible force.

Dark clouds surround creating the very source.
Animals scurry in such a hurry , diving under abandoned vehicles for cover.

If we looked beyond the faces of the buildings I wonder what we would discover.
Tales of years gone by, no longer inhabitated.

The question is why?
Children’s clothes and toys left too,

In a rush to leave, what caused this exodus, over head a vulture flew.
Some bones left scattered the last remnants of life,

Will we ever know why there was blood on the knife.
