Ash leaves

Still waiting for the ginkgo down the block to drop all its leaves at once, a regular fall occurrence. Working to hear the ash leaves in back talk with each other.

The ash leaves
In back
Are half green,
Half yellow.
The fall light
Illuminates them
So both show
The same.
They hold the branches,
Promise each other
To let go
At the same time,
Wait for fall wind
Or rain
To join each other,
Cover the grass.
