Indigo Blue Riptides–Judie Bristow

Emerging into vast darkness.
Allowing waves to overtake me.
Into the Indigo Blue.

Sinking deeper into the frozen depths
Watching, Anticipating the old fears.
Into the Indigo Blue.

Overcoming the turbulent riptides.
Sensing and embracing a changing course.
Into the Indigo Blue.

Body and mind floating weightlessly.
Free flowing currents of inner peace.
Into the Indigo Blue.
