haibun - 'A wind blew the rain on through, mostly clear skies now.'

A wind blew the rain on through, mostly clear skies now. A half-moon. Between the rain and the wind, a lot of leaves fell, my street is covered. It is cold outside in my pajamas and a hooded sweatshirt, so I don't stay long, just enough to listen to the cold wind and see the moon.

Moonlight, wind-sounds,
Wet leaves scattered like lost children ---
Shivering under the half-moon.
An autumn rain has passed over,
Nourishing the earth.
