This poem consists of four words in haiku form. With the phrases “a leaf falls”, and “loneliness”. The poem is so simple yet so complex, a metaphor for something much more in depth than just a few words. The letters inside the parentheses spell the phrase "a leaf falls." The letters outside the parentheses spell the word “loneliness”. The poem seems to be using an event in the natural world a single leaf falling from a tree as a symbol for a human state of mind. The long, narrow shape of the poem resembles the number 1, and maybe it also resembles the path of a leaf falling from its tree and fluttering down to the ground on a lonely day.

Also tells us that average people who live in average towns live without evolving , given by the pattern of seasons and rearrangement gives off a different meaning. Why does he use pronouns to describe differently?
