Vermilion Torii
floating grandly on azure sea.
Behold.. a holy place.

We take the train, then the ferry,
to Miyajima.. A sacred island.
The beautiful torii gate stands guard before the Itsukushima Shinto Shrine,
and appears to float on the sea.

The island is such a beautiful place of peace.
The deer roam freely.
I love the loving care that is shown to trees. 

Another Torii leads us to the shrine.. 

that is built over the breathing in and out of the ocean. 

The tide is ebbing slowly.. 

and I feel I could live forever in this holy place. 

Always water to cleanse hands and mouths. 

I feel so grateful to see this place.
