Removing the wrap, carefully
one by one, unraveling wonders.
Curiosity leads us, to proceed further
unwrapping more treasurable gifts.
The ribbons cut reveals
the next gift behind the wrap,
yet another beautifully colored wrap
when will this onion peels end?
Alas, before questioning the Sender
end of life engulfs us.
As the curtain rises again
we disappear
without discovering what gift it was
