always blue

It has always been blue for me. 
Unwavering. Unrelenting. 
Dark blue carpet and blue gingham curtains that matched the blue gingham canopy I used to dream under.
Sky blue walls and blue & white striped cushions, and even a valance that hung over our first very-own kitchen sink. 
His deep blue eyes, and hers. 

Pink once tried to woo me, but I couldn't fully commit.
And while I might brake for magenta, it is always blue that captures my full soul.  Especially when it is dotted with wispy white or pelicans...

Or slashed with a navy stripe and blended with shades of aqua. 

It is here that blue takes my breath away and stops the world from spinning. 
It is here, that against the blue, the sandpipers scurry along the shoreline and chase the worries away. 
It is here... in the blue.

That final photo--that "stripe" of dark blue at the horizon--that's breathtaking.

So you're a blue girl! Yes, that fits. I love that you weren't able to commit to pink. Just one more reason to love you. :)

Lovely blue. It suits you. You should share this with Emily at imperfect prose. Beautiful.
