I'm thinking about the word "deep", a prompt for a poem friends have written to. I love this word. I see myself as deep, the universe as deep well of infinite energy, my connection to that energy assured. the concept of depth has always comforted me - deep stillness under water, in the forrest. I do better at the heart of things than on the surface, best closest to core, to birth and death. The shallow waters with tricky currents, everyday living is where I struggle. Deep is simple - offers fewer choices, requires only abiding.
