I found an onion…


in the basket on top of my fridge,

forgotten.


It had sprouted.


I cut the ends off,

peeled back the shiny outer skin.


Moldy, rotten layers

I removed with my fingers.


In the centre

I discovered the source

of the new growth.


A bright green core -

vital and alive,

hidden beneath the

shiny exterior and

the moldy rotten inner layers.


I stepped away from

chopping vegetables

to write down this

hopeful observation.
