낙엽귀근 (落葉歸根)

"Fallen leaves return to roots", I was told. Walking under a gingko tree which has just been gently caressed by the autumn breeze, a fallen leaf landed on my outstretched palm. I could have stopped nature from taking its course, but I did not; I tilted my palm to let it fell so that it could go on to fulfill its destiny. The beauty of autumn should not be disturbed.
