Poem a day challenge...
Day 5 Prompt: Landmark
The Wailing Wall - Ha Kotel
Folded notes between the stones
at the mercy of sun wind and rain
reverent hope that not one word
will fail to make it home
I thought about writing on an Australian landmark and there are plenty to choose from. Instead I chose the Wailing Wall (Ha Kotel) at the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. I have visited this awesome landmark twice and have placed a prayer between those stones on my second visit. It was an experience I will never forget.
