The Ivy #14

The ivy crawled up the chimney

sneaking into the cracks

where water found a way in, and expanded.

The ivy crawled up the chimney

hiding behind the morning glories

that camouflage the damage

til bricks crumble.

Large chunks fall

bringing the ivy down too

until all that is left

is a pile of broken bricks

held together with ivy.
