Travel Sri Lanka Haiku - The Temple Of Tooth Relic, Kandy - Poem by john tiong chunghoo

temple of the tooth relic
the roof bells clang like buddha
himself welcoming me

buddha tooth temple
the chants over the
serenity of the lake

buddha tooth temple
the evening prayers and
the serenity of the lake

buddha tooth temple
filled to the brim
a holiness in the the lake

the temple is the most sacred buddhist temple in the world. It has in its possession, a tooth of the buddha.
