We build that we might dwell;
we dwell on the building
that we might build it
Home is built,
but not all that’s built is home
though the highest use of building
is a dwelling.
I think that I can shape language
into a vision, a rebuke or commendation;
instead, language shapes my seeing,
We construct the destructible.
We cultivate the renewable, garden
and soul, to sustain us today and tomorrow
for even in our dwelling
we are building.
