Jerusalem 1

We were watching the woman stand

by the cross,

arms out-stretched.


Friends taking pictures

Smiling also,


The Church of the Holy Sepulchre.


It was a strange moment.


Next door is Golgotha,

And around the corner the place of resurrection.



People queuing to have a moment.

It is hard to know what to make of belief when you are approaching an experience from an historical perspective; looking at the stones, analysing the rocks.

Some were crying.
