Poet's notes

Poetry form:  Monorhyme

Based on Revelation 19:11-18

Birds in midheaven flying all around Soaring high then gliding down Gazing with hunger upon the town Instinctively knowing up from down Observing unbridled spiritual breakdown White horse and rider with august kingly crown, Bright white, bloodstained flowing gown To all birds an invitation did righteously resound A great feast of kings and commanders showdown A feast of strong and great after the takedown. Birds in midheaven flying all around Soaring high then gliding down Pleasing the rider of supreme renown Gazing with hunger upon each town Great Evening Meal's final countdown

Really great interpretation of apocalyptic prophecy, Mark, and that's not easy to do ... Peter's visions were quite extraordinary things, with such rich symbolism and ambiguity ... I have perused them and studied them for a long time, and still so much is of divine understanding alone, I believe. This is going to my favs. Well-done, my friend!

Greg, you don't know how happy you've made me by commenting on this one and making it one of your favs! I was rather sad that no one had commented on this; but then again, John's visions in Revelation can be rather dark and sobering, yeah? Take care, my friend! ~Mark
