Jerusalem’s Old City dotted with religious, cultural landmarks

Worldfocus producer Mohammad Al-Kassim recently traveled to Israel and captured these images of Jerusalem’s Old City.

The Old City of Jerusalem is home to several key religious sites, such as the Jewish Temple Mount and its Western Wall, the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, and the Dome of the Rock and al-Aqsa Mosque.

During the Crusader era of the Kingdom of Jerusalem, there were four gates to the Old City, one on each side. The current walls have a total of eleven gates, but only seven are in use, each with its own name in Hebrew and Arabic.

Concerning what is seen and heard and felt here:

Could there ever be a Proper Alchemy mingled into
every Aspect Of The Words which we speak
which are spoken indeed beneath Branches
Of Thought-Trees As Growing Still In The Earliest
Gardens (Eden) Of Meanings for centuries determined from those very Roots Signifying Originally Intended Interpretations whether or not we have ever understood entirely the Native
Languages of the Human Speaker before us
who Daily and Nightly has long assembled
(like Ecclesiastes) the Finite Structures upon which we must continue to build all the Contexts
of all The Infinite Things in Life we conceive?

Could there ever then be a Proper Atmosphere
for the flowing Alchemy by which our Minds must necessarily process the Light and the Dark into Temperate Mixings…
our Necessary Transmutations of Human
Understanding of the Days we sacrifice and the Nights we endure which run throughout all our liquid Alchemical Lives which are Lived
within the Realms of the shared Atmospheres of the Regions of this Vast World as we Live In Them…in words of bodily Finite Symbologies beneath the weight of singularly wordless
Substance partaking of Infinity…our Whole Lives Long?
