Mid Autumn

The fig tree let its big leaves fall on the ground.

The persimmon tree let the leaves and kept the fruits.

The prune still keeps some of its little leaves on its long branches.

The furious wind knocks to our window and speaks.

And I am learning what to let fall and what to keep,

and when it is time to knock and speak up.
