Unesco Heritage Site Haiku - Bethlehem, Palestine - Poem by john tiong chunghoo

so easy to imagine
christ and his feet
walking on the lanes

the echoes of his birth
never ever stopped

the breeze sweeps through us
like the night he was born

the stars spangled night
our awe

is there any place quieter
than here?

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Bethlehem isn't just the place where Christians believe Jesus was born: it's also home to some of the oldest religious buildings in the world, including Latin, Greek Orthodox, Franciscan and Armenian churches, monasteries and bell towers. As a result of all these factors it is a popular pilgrimage spot, although we have a sneaking suspicion that donkey is no longer the preferred form of transport for visitors.
