The quote on the photo is an excerpt from Nine Year Pregnancy, from the poem “Suspended” on p. 43.

New International Version (©1984) Psalm 43:5
Why are you downcast, O my soul? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God.

New International Version (©1984) Psalm 42:1
As the deer pants for streams of water, so my soul pants for you, O God.

New International Version (©1984)Psalm 51:12
Restore to me the joy of your salvation and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me.
