Thanks, vaughn and andrew. As my response to aurora and polona suggests, I was afraid it might be too subtle, too stark. I'm glad it works for you.

It's not too stark..."abandoned" is such a weighty word, combined with the image of moonlight on broken glass...it's at once romantic and skin crawling. Very cool.

Just some five words,
and so strong story!

What happened? No lights anymore,
just moonlight left. Why broken glass. Yeah. If I got some good idea in the middle of the night,
I'll phone you!
