He took me in spirit to a great, high mountain and showed me the holy city Jerusalem coming down out of heaven from God. It gleamed with the splendor of God. Its radiance was like that of a precious stone, like jasper, clear as crystal. – Rev 21:10-11

how far has man fallen
when we judge
the nature of God
by the outward appearance
of his heavenly city

we turn from his grace
and ignore the beauty
innate inside all of us
and look outward
for signs from heaven
