Juxtaposition – of metaphorical usage.

A lightning flash:

between the forest trees

I have seen water.

Shiki Masaoka – (1867-1902)

2 In the Qayyumu’l-Asma’ — the Bab’s commentary on the Surih of Joseph — characterized by the Author of the Iqan as “the first, the greatest and mightiest” of the books revealed by the Bab, we read the following references to Baha’u’llah: “Out of utter nothingness, O great and omnipotent Master, Thou hast, through the celestial potency of Thy might, brought me forth and raised me up to proclaim this Revelation. I have made none other but Thee my trust; I have clung to no will but Thy will… O Thou Remnant of God! I have sacrificed myself wholly for Thee: I have accepted curses for Thy sake, and have yearned for naught but martyrdom in the path of Thy love. Sufficient witness unto me is God, the Exalted, the Protector, the Ancient of Days.” “And when the appointed hour hath struck,” He again addresses Baha’u’llah in that same commentary, “do Thou, by the leave of God, the All-Wise, reveal from the heights of the Most Lofty and Mystic Mount a faint, an infinitesimal glimmer of Thy impenetrable Mystery, that they who have recognized the radiance of the Sinaic Splendor may faint away and die as they catch a lightening glimpse of the fierce and crimson Light that envelops Thy Revelation.”
