Autumn Meditation

In autumn, we rake fallen leaves together and burn them,

burying the ashes around the root of a tree.  This is not

planting a tree, but fertilizing the existing tree.

Such should be autumn meditation:

It is not to desire new things,

but to look after the things

we have cultivated over the summer.
