Images of GyeongJu: Bulguksa Dabotap, South Korea's most famous Pagoda

Days' end.

The Pagoda stood before me...

And I--like a wild animal; inquizzitive, standing before a man-made structure.

The story--a history unbeknownst to me;
deeper and more rich than the gold of a thousand chest-fold.

The lion, whose forgotten sorrow roars at passersby--yields to warnings of days' past and days to come.

Where the sun, all the while, bids farewell to another journey's end.

(original prose by Chelsea D Pyper c.2005)
