Guarding Happiness

when at last you find
your perfect environment
and build your life upon it
to your own design and truth
your whole world becomes sacred

when it has taken
such work to carve out your space
and fill it with warmth and love
there is so much delight in
ritual and celebration

when you feel stable and safe
and you can open the gates
to adventures and laughter
you can expand horizons
and even let people in

when you have planted
seeds in order and routine
and watered your crops daily
inspiration flourishes
in chaotic abundance

but when the outlook changes
or the weather starts to turn
you must check your boundaries
and take joy in the process
of protecting your new peace
