Onion

I'm peeling back layers,
a translucent onion;
a sunlit center.

My essence will be
nothing of today.

Scatter scraps
of me
falling brittle
on the ground.
Softly falling.
Crunchy to walk on.

Until
rain's cooling touch
washes me past
the earth's
messy, muddy hold.

Wash me, rain,
into earth again.
I am an onion.
It is my birthright
to unfold.
