A Chimney Stands on a Hill.....


it stands proud
high up on the hill
~:~
beneath a huge oak tree
that protects it like an offspring
under its wing
~:~
unattached
to any structure
it leans to one side
as if it suffers a limp
~:~
years of winds
whipping over the rolling pasture
like a ride at an amusement park
have taken its toll on its weathered bricks
~:~
even so...
~:~
it still stands proud
high up on that hill
saluting the passers-by
