Deep Blue

Deep Blue

Holding the deep blue moment

against the bones of my heart.

Carving out the shallow places

filled with mud, stone, and

broken branches to make way

for eternal roots. Plummeting

the depth of this extravagance

and asking myself over and over,

“What price Love so deep?”

Not that I loved, but

that He loved me first.
