2013-06-29 Seoul 22 Hand on Bell

Up close,
I could read the words on the sign,
“This monument
Was built
To remind you
That though it is here
We are not.
Don’t you get it?
Why are you
Your time?”


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.
