I found an onion…

in the basket on top of my fridge,


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.
