The Dream of a Ginko Tree (Eunhaeng kumida)

Where was it written -
that long before the coming of autumn,
this leaf of a ginko
were to fall from its temple tree

Where was it written –
that Mother Nature intended for thousands of similar leaves
to be taken by the reckless winds, not knowing their roots
- not knowing their mother’s face

By Kim, Sungkyung

I absolutely love the Ginko trees lining the streets here in Korea. And I love the bright yellow color that they turn in the fall.
