Revelation

                                                                                                   (Image Source:  http://www.internetmonk.com)                                                   

Silken dreams woven,
Surreal caricature,
Pure revelation.

Inviting ruptures,
Revelation of fragments,
Heroes smile in wombs.

Saint John on Patmos,
Book of the Revelation,
Apocalyptic.


This Haiku is shared with Haiku Heights and the Prompt is Revelation.

  2. This is a unique set of revelations. If I had to choose a favourite it would be the second with "heroes smile in wombs

  3. WOW! I take it as a warning of things to come.. the apocalypse. Something that I think we're all afraid of to some degree but then why should we fear? He will return to take us all home when that time comes. I love how you talked about the rapture.. and the picture of the book of revelation makes it stand out even more! Very beautiful!

  12. I studied the bible for nearly 9 years ... The book of revelation is one of my favourites, because it really doesn't reveal anything ... excet what you make of it in your own mind ... must admit though, that I love Psalm 139 ... has dried many of my tears of mine ... the rest ... no, thanks, all the murder and wife and child abuse ... and Paulus and his letters ... I would gladly give him a black eye, if I could ...

    3. I am not a believer of any particular faith ... in fact, I love reading about all faiths and try to learn from each one of them :-)

  13. I follow the Baha'i religious tenants (not the organized religion - Although Baha'i isn't very organized!) and your POWERFUL haiku's resonated.

    P.S. Baha'i recognizes ALL major religious groups and believes the prophets of each are all divine manifestations of one God.
