Unesco Heritage Site Haiku - The Red Fort, New Delhi, India - Poem by john tiong chunghoo

missing the item for the day
guide and the tourist fight
over red fort

red fort - we run from
pillar to pillar to feel
the vastness of moghul pleasure

the red fort
moghul's own
forbidden city

the red fort
within the walls
shah jahan's glory


Poet's Notes about The Poem

Near the gardens of the Taj Mahal stands the important 16th-century Mughal monument known as the Red Fort of Agra. This powerful fortress of red sandstone encompasses, within its 2.5-km-long enclosure walls, the imperial city of the Mughal rulers. It comprises many fairy-tale palaces, such as the Jahangir Palace and the Khas Mahal, built by Shah Jahan; audience halls, such as the Diwan-i-Khas; and two very beautiful mosques. -unesco web site
