Psalm Fragments

         I took this photo last year in late November
       overlooking Portminster beach St Ives, Cornwall.
Lord, I curl in Thy grey
gossamer hammock
that swings by one
elastic thread to thin
twigs that could, that should
break but don’t.

I do nothing, I give You
nothing. Yet You hold me
minute by minute
from falling.

Lord You provide.
