Two Jerusalems - Poem by gershon hepner

Two Jerusalems there are,
one above and one below;
double-named as double star,
one celestial entrepôt,
one transformed from threshing floor
to Solomon’s great temple site,
perennially a cause of war,
though monument to peace, not might.

Bejeweled with two diadems,
fabulous their finery,
both of these Jerusalems
beckon to us, binary,
the one on earth a mere sideshow
for that above it, though the lever
to raise the one that lies below
is heaven’s ultimate endeavor.
