Standing by the window
tears flow from my eyes
losing you was criminal
but hardly a surprise.
I met you many years ago
you were always in my life
in every dish I chose to cook
even cooked by my wife.
I peeled your outer shell
to feel your slippery skin
but you slipped between my fingers
then fell into the bin !
Shredded in my Pot
your aroma filled the air
the smell was so delicious
colored light and fair.
When I attempted to eat you
horror entered my mind
I couldn't eat this onion
the one that made me blind.


  1. lol. love me some onions...but not enough to stop eating them. happy saturday william....

  2. William,
    how are you this morning?

  3. Standing by the window
    tears flow from my eyes
    losing you was criminal
    but hardly a surprise.

    you always make your words dance with musical sound, merry and solid,...

    humans eat vegetables and meats, wow, plants and animals are part of nature and they do have lives...
    you have a good point there,

    Happy Saturday!

  14. The pieces of onion
    Peeling it slowly as the seconds go
    The undressing falling tears joyously cry
    By the window the cool fresh air

    As the peeling knife edges in
    The juices drip the hunger flow
    Somewhere the cooking will flourish
    By the hands cooking the dishes

    The slides peeling away
    Never afraid to get into the hot wok
    Bubbling with enthusiasm for a cause
    For healthy living live to tell stories

    The bubbling oil all eager to embrace
    The chopped onions juicy strikes
    The aroma travelling out of the window
    The wing insects stopping by to smell

    The aroma lingers
    Of scent and peeling flow
    By the window the cool breeze blow
    The tears fall the taste of living
