peel away the layers of confusion
tainted by the busy mental chatter 
negativity will shatter

these onion layers of existence
are excessive and oh so raw
for every layer peeled there are more

if calmness is the goal
these layers must be known
or contamination is grown

exercise and food nourish body
awareness crucial for the mind
or be lost in pungent vapours that blind

when preparing food
consider self awareness
for it embellishes kindness

dVerse, looking for sustenance, Lisa
