Single spiral shell.
Fortress, castle, home sweet home.
But a ball and chain.

The author's comments:
As you might have been able to tell, this haiku is about a snail. Snails are lucky to always have their home close at hand, but it is also what keeps them from doing anything fast. They trade safety for adventure. Sometimes we need to shed out shells and dare to find out what life has in store for us if we will only step outside.
