Weekly Photo Challenge: Companion – Kinship Memorial Lantern

This photo is part of WordPress’ Weekly Photo Challenge: Companion – my entries for other weeks can be found here.

Kinship Memorial Lantern by Seas Reflecting Starlight

Special companions are those who stay with us, even when we can’t be physically together.  The bond that connects us is something that can transcend distance, and even the cycle of life and death.

At the Lantern Floating Festival in Honolulu on Memorial Day 2013, this little girl carries a lantern down to the water to release into the ocean.  The lantern is in loving memory of someone close to her who has passed on, but it is also in honor of the special connection that the two of them have.
