Meditation on a Memory

And there was a great earthquake.
And the sun became black as sackcloth made of hair.
And the moon became like blood...
And the stars of the sky fell to the earth, as a fig tree casts its unripe figs when shaken by a great wind.
And the sky was split apart like a scroll when it is rolled up.
And every mountain and island were moved out of their places.
And the kings of the earth and the great men,
and the rich and the oligarchs,
and the strong and every free man,
hid themselves in the caves and among the rocks of the mountains;
and they said to the mountains and to the rocks,
"Fall on us and hide us from the presence of Him who sits on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb, for the great day of His wrath has come, and who is able to stand?'' from Andrei Tarkovsky's Stalker(1979).
