The Little Onion

as I sat by the sea
  
pondering mysteries  
  
love, life, death, dreams  
  
I saw through the mist  
  
a little onion  
  
dwelling in a sad place  
  
full of lonely tears  
  
it’s layers torn through  
  
revealing emptiness  
  
sadness unleashed  
  
undone by life  
  
the onion laid upon  
  
the soft earth and wept  
  
as the earth received
  
the tears of the onion  
  
new life began to flow  
  
the earth kissed  the little onion

and roots began to take hold  
  
strength and light  
  
flowing freely, nourishing  
  
giving new life  
  
healing the scars  
  
restoring what was lost  
  
the little onion rejoiced  
  
in the light of the new day  
  
dwelling in the afterglow  
  
of new life and love  
  
the pain remembered  
  
only as a whisper  
  
on a cold night  
  
and thus the vision  
  
faded into the mist  
  
leaving me to wonder  
  
at it’s meaning

  1. This is simply lovely and so very unique! Who knew life lessons lie in an onion! But on a serious note, I guess some amount of pain is necessary. Grief really does nourish the soul. Lovely words. 🙂
