WPC – Graceful Sight


The Pagoda of Kiyomizudera
The Pagoda of Kiyomizudera

My husband and I were visiting temples on the last of our days in Kyoto before continuing to Nagoya. And as planned in this anniversary’s getaway, we -as tropical people- preferred to walk around the beautiful gardens which were full of colorful autumn leaves.

On that afternoon we were in the end of walk of Kiyomizudera, a famous UNESCO World Heritage Buddhist temple which is located in eastern Kyoto. While the other people straight walk to the exit gate, I stopped for a while on the small spot behind a tree to take the picture of Kiyomizudera’s pagoda. Nobody’s there to see the graceful sight in front of my eyes. The bright colored pagoda stands gracefully in a frame of beautiful red maples with the clear blue sky as backdrop. The building is man-made but nature binds its beauty silently in harmony. It speaks its language,

Love… binds everything together in perfect harmony
