I could read the words on the sign,
To remind you
That though it is here
We are not.
Don’t you get it?
Why are you
About the poem:
The photo was taken of the belfry in Seoul, at Jongro 3-ga. Yes, what is the point of visiting ancient monuments, if not to remind us primarily that their makers are gone; that we will die. I wonder why this is such an obvious fact, but so easily denied on a daily basis.
Let’s remember and choose wisely today.
