Where Jesus Touched The Earth - Poem by Steve Turner

I went to see where Jesus
once touched the earth
but the Catholics
had got there before me
and obscured His footprints
with arches, buttresses,
gold and incense.

I went to see where Jesus once touched the earth.
I couldn't see for
concrete and collection boxes,
for postcards and guide books.

So I looked further down.
I looked to the ground.
But the ground was thirty feet
higher than back in A.D.3.
This is not where Jesus walked.

I looked down, down to my feet,
my legs,arms,chest.
I looked down to where Jesus
touches the earth.
