(a series of haikus)




Before...'His' return 

and prophetic times ensue 

let 'His' sate love...'burn' 



Horsemen come with their 'tokens' 

pray...before winter 


The stars...they will fall 

the mountains and islands flee 

dead seas...spew blood gall 


The rocks won't hide us 

flesh melts from fall's dust 

turn...before winter 


Minutes will be chained 

pardon for stone minds...cease 

ere...judgment claims 


While 'mercy's' still sure 

and prior to 'grace' more 

come...before winter 


With arms wide open 

'He' yearns for your 'self'...complete 

only 'He'...holpens   


Render contrite hearts 

  so little time...hark! start   

now!...before winter  






Rev 6,7,8,20

Conversion is still available and is a gift from God through Jesus Christ the Lord: The only way to the Father is through Jesus Charist Savior of the World. Thank you Joyce for the reminder. Not only what you revealed in your poem is true it is only the begining! Peace!!!

Some have winter outside, but there are those that have winter inside because they don't come near His fire.

I don't think I have ever read haikus on this subject, which makes them really unique, I like that! ;) Blessings, my friend-Michelle

Great write, Joyce. As for me? "The sooner He comes back the better," I say! God bless.

Very clear image of the approaching “End of days” or apocalypse. Very well done! You touched my heart and made me think and revise my faith…

Love, Ankin

Joyce, these may not be haiku in the truest sense, but
I admire the artistry of your lovely 3-line stanzas. -gene.
Reviewed by Kate Burnside 8/24/2009
Fantastic choice of form for these profound messages, Joyce. You render a completel clarion call here and I particularly like how you interweave Biblical truths about a certain future (which may seem like a very distant reality at times) with the all-too-nearness of the changing season which is already at the door and to which we can all relate most tangibly! Excellent stuff here! You are a true prophet in the sense of message-bearer. Bless you, Kate xx

These Haikus are very intense, but very well written. Nicely done.
Peace, love, and light,

Reviewed by Jeanette Cooper 8/24/2009
These haiku(s)are rather scary with a setting that encompasses violent times. "Spew blood gall, flesh melts from bone, gross evil and stone hearts" make one cringe with fear. This poem sounds like an event coming from the days of warriors. Your writing gives it impact!
