Sheltered

She trudged up slopes in ice

And cold

The wind bent chilly fingers down

Her coat.

Till finally she saw

Up top

A cave indenting

Ancient rock.

She crawled in,

Grateful,

To take stock.

  1. Oh, yes, this is well done. Sent songs to my ear,
    “If I don’t get some shelter
    Ooh yeah I’m gonna fade away”
    from ‘Gimme Shelter’ (The Rolling Stones); also,
    from the Eagles’ ‘Lyin’ Eyes’ the more metaphorical line,
    “I guess every form of refuge has its price.” 🙂
