Observable Impermanence

[Observable Impermanence]

Today's Daily Zen:
Green waters and verdant mountains
are the places to walk in meditation;
by the streams or under the trees
are places to clear the mind.
Observe impermanence,
never forget it;
this urges on the will to seek enlightenment.

— Keizan Jokin (1264-1325)

Okay, perhaps it is not as clearing to the mind, but the city is rife with observable impermanence.
