portrait of a shrimp boat. a poem.

*****

bent and weary arms pulled
in tight
against the sides of the
empty hull
waiting for dawn, a new
chance
tides slap the sides
lapping at fear
the boat tips
uncertain night smothers
hope
then
the sun

“…pray continually…”
I Thessalonians 5:7

*****

“Your inadequacy presents you with a continual choice–deep dependence on Me or despair.”
~Jesus Calling, Sarah Young
