[Current Mood |sleepy]

Consider the onion;
Mother of a thousand thousand meals
How can word or thought encompass
All its power and beauty?

Just give thanks and eat.

Eat an onion? Are you pregnant?

I hated onions so much until I was about 29 that I used to say i was allergic to them so that there would be no accidental stray onion on my dinner plate. Recently, I have started making my own curries and thus, a beautiful friendship (Mmmmm, friends) has begun. I still don't go for raw white onion but I love some sauteed yellow or fresh red. I can't believe I snubbed them for so long.

luminous flask,
your beauty formed
petal by petal,
crystal scales expanded you
and in the secrecy of the dark earth
your belly grew round with dew.
