My Zen Life - gatha on impermanence

My Zen Life blog quotes this from the ‘plumb village chanting and recitation book’:

"the day is now ended.
our lives are shorter.
now we look carefully.
what have we done?

noble sangha, with all of our heart,
let us be diligent,
engaging in the practice.
let us live deeply,
free from our afflictions,
aware of impermanence
so that life does not
drift away without meaning."
