Today I Hunted Ivy

Today I hunted for ivy
I pursued ivy ...
to make a heart.

I prowled the bylanes
and alleyways dark
in their autumnal crisp.

Icy puddle obstacles
trapped among the cobbles
grey, slate and blue.

In this quest,
few eyes glimpsed
my whispered passing.

Diversions arose
in the details of a
lost and rusting world.

Then all too soon,
Treasure! Cascades
of forest stars ... unwanted.
