I wanted to visit Jiuzhaigou for a long time. Once I set my feet inside the park, the beauty of the lake instantly hooked my soul, as if I had seen it all before. Perhaps in a dream? The misty rain fell down like a curtain on the lake, surrounded by green hills. The lake half revealed her face peeping out from the behind, knowing who I was. I could tell she was overjoyed to see me coming and fulfill the commitment we had made before.
Endless rain needles were falling into the lake, stirring up circle ripples on the surface, which seemed to tell me the past, which gradually aroused my memory: Once upon a time in the Spring, we held hands together, walked in the swallow’s twittering sound, and nestled down at the hill foot to watch fresh green spouts growing and stretching to the tips of the trees. In the summer, clouds roamed over our heads. Under the blue sky, you often smiled quietly at me, and blindfolded my eyes with colorful blankets. Until the moon arose, you nurtured me with cool breeze. In the autumn we climbed afar and walked on the mountain trails, with leaves rustling under our footsteps. We looked at the lines of wild geese flying south, swearing that we would never abandon each other like them. The winter snow wrapped your figure in an elegant shape. The crystal world echoed you laugh everywhere. You looked back and flashed a smile at me. I couldn't help to hold you up as we transformed into an icy statue together on the edge of the cliff. I clearly remembered you whispering in my ear: we have to see each other again in afterlife.
Here I was, coming with noisy crowds, not sure since when I became so ordinary, nothing but a scholar. But you were quietly lying in the arms of the smoking mountains, dressed up so elegantly, waiting for me to come. Time had never changed you, still with that pretty look. Your gentle and quiet manner reminded me of how I knew you before. I could tell from your half-closed eyelids, you tried to cover your surging feelings in your heart. Standing by the waterfall, I suddenly realized that this was your chest open to express your emotion. The splashes were your tears to show your sadness and yearning, which had lasted for a long time. Your tears wet my face, cold and touching. But I had to leave again -- heartbreak again. I really didn’t want to go. I was going to travel faraway, bringing you with me in my camera. Your pretty pictures would accompany me forever, as a treasure and soulmate. Let’s make the same promise and commitment: meet in the next lifetime.
Postscript: The water landscape in Jiuzhaigou is comprised of a stacking lakes and waterfalls, quite dynamic and entertaining. Together with the surrounding mountain contrast, they exhibit incomparable elegancy and beauty. I wrote this small piece to record my feeling and thankful thinking of Jiuzhaigou.】
