Fountain at the Basilica [Watery & Outdoor Wednesday]

From the inner corridor of the Basilica Minore del Santo Nino in Cebu, I noticed this small circular plaza with a fountain at the center. Ah, finally---a peaceful haven from the crowded basilica and busy sacristi, away from tourists, pilgrims, devotees and vendors.

When you hear the splash
Of the water drops that fall

Into the stone bowl
You will feel that all the dust
Of your mind is washed away.

I like the presence of fountains in church courtyard. I don't know where this started.

Lovely shots especially the first one. I noticed that boy, seems like he's taken by the charm of the fountain and maybe will take a dip later haha.

What a beautiful place to be still and say a prayer for all the intentions in our hearts...
