2014 Day 25 – Not Jericho

And the walls fell,
Not in a sudden crash,
A trumpeted destruction,
But a slow pebble here,
A trickle of earth,
Stone slipping quietly.
Moss grew,
Plush green carpet,
And flowers pushed through
From shade to sun.

 

Note: the prompt was to write a poem that features walls, bricks, stones, arches, or the like.
