POETRY ROCK SURREY PUBLIC ART

Asian Garden, Bear Creek Park Garden, Bear Creek Park entrance southwest of 140 St & 88 Ave Poetry rock consists of a large piece of raw granite engraved with a poem composed by Surrey resident Dr. rev. byung Sub Van. A distinguished Korean-canadian writer and theologian, rev. Van composed the poem titled “mere Water am i”, which is inscribed on the rock in both Korean and English. it addresses the universal theme of water in its many forms, from raindrops to rivers to oceans, and through its many uses, from slaking thirst to producing power for factories. At the same time, the work uses the metaphor of water to celebrate social unity and cultural diversity. the work is a gift to the people of Surrey from rev. Van, his family and his sponsors.
