I woke with some fear about the upcoming chemo, then, again spoke to myself about how silly it is to fret over something so far in the future. All is fine in this moment, and I honor that the body knows the chemo place as a scary place, a poisonous red berry. Don't do that again, it says.   Let's go to the beach instead.    

Here is my morning poem through the fear to the juiciness of my insides.  

Juicy, the Sacred Within   

this morning
a lavender sheet
of fog
walks toward me,
like a  blanket,
wanting to warm
my fear -
I enter
as it comes around
to embrace my back,
a hand,
the heart, of a hand,
the land,
where fear
is winter, spring,
summer, fall -

My windows are full,
stained with color,
juiciness wiggling,
like worms,
through apples,
and birds.
