101. love chain

in the courtyard garden of a temple outside of the city, prayers are tied into magnolia trees and sacred chains.

red ribbons with golden writing are ceremoniously tied with a breath and a blessing.

locks of love clasp to the chain, in hopes that their loves will be bound, as unbreakable and holy as these.

incense and bells ring and fill the air.

this is a place where dreams set sail, where wishes begin to construct themselves around us.
