innocence


Photo taken at Tomohon, North Sulawesi, Indonesia. In the background, the Lokon volcanic mountain.

~~~~~  ٩(●̮̮̃•̃)۶  ~~~~~

sounds of innocence

mingling with bird songs

within this serenity of greens

teasing the giant volcano

in their backyard playground

~~~~~  ٩(-̮̮̃-̃)۶  ~~~~~

some eat Happy Meals while playing

some make sand castles or snowman

these here,

dance along

to sounds of nature

~~~~~  ٩(͡๏̯͡๏)۶  ~~~~~

you fierce giant

be their angel

watch over the innocence

don’t hurt them

’cause they’re yours

~~~~~  ٩(-̮̮̃•̃)۶  ~~~~~

never before

have i seen

fierceness and gentleness collide

a beautiful scenery

a magical moment

~~~~~  ٩(×̯×)۶  ~~~~~

***  I took the picture above when visiting the location in January 2011.  This particular picture has left such a mark in my heart.  After I took it, I knew that I would have to come back to it again in the future to be blogged.  So here it is, the picture is back in my life.  Above are four separated gogyohka poems. For more info regarding gogyohka, please see an earlier post I wrote about gogyohka (click the link here: About Gogyohka).  ***
