Shelter and harbor elusive,
whether stone, wood, or an embrace.
A warm place,
a safe haven,
too seldom realized,
too often trapped in dreams
where love has been.
Now is the time:
build a shelter,
save the self.
Keep health in your arms
and safe from harm,
strong enough
to embrace the work required,
to salvage life,
undo the forlorn myth,
and flourish.
