Lala Aliyeva | 3'08'' | Azerbaijan #filmhaiku
Full moon shaped,
Dark-orange, light-orange, solid, soft with thin skin.
The shape, the color, the texture -
The attributes that you see or touch.
It is just a persimmon.
The soft one will be fragrant.
The solid should wait for its time.
It might be chalky, astringent.
Eating a persimmon is an act that stands by itself.
And not a spectacular view of the other face.
But dried under the sun, in the land,
they forbid you to go - it can deceive.
