mid-autumn

Mid-autumn Festival is coming up.
My favo(u)rite of all holidays.
Inside this bamboo structure will come song.
Handmade paper structures will fly to sky.
A long body of incense will waft through the streets for three nights.
And cakes of moon for all of us.

I was wrong. This wasn't for Mid-Autumn Festival but for Hungry Ghost Festival, when we make sure the spirits of the deceased are also healthy and loved.
