Today, I find myself anticipating sinking into the abyss,
welcoming the deep quietude it will bring.
Suspending activity, I am carried into a place
deep in the interior of my being.

The light shines within
and there is little movement.
I have not known this place before.
I wonder will I be able to access it
after this last dive after this last chemo treatment?

What is the gift these 6 periods of
deep diving bringing forth?
What will emerge from the depths
as the months go on?
