Things are as big as you make them

Things are as big as you make them –
I can fill a whole body,
a whole day of life
with worry
on one scrap of paper;
yet, the same evening,
looking up,
can frame my fingers
to fit the sky
in my cupped hands.

Lucy Partington, whose remains were among those discovered in the basement of Fred and Rosemary West. The quote is from Marian Partington, If You Sit Very Still.
