     1. Threatening to occur immediately; near at hand; impending;

        imminent." --Spenser.

     Syn: Impending; threatening; near; at hand.
  
     Usage: Imminent, Impending, Threatening. Imminent is
            the strongest: it denotes that something is ready to
            fall or happen on the instant; as, in imminent danger
            of one's life. Impending denotes that something hangs
            suspended over us, and may so remain indefinitely; as,
            the impending evils of war. Threatening supposes some
            danger in prospect, but more remote; as, threatening
            indications for the future.
            [1913 Webster]
  
                  Three times to-day
                  You have defended me from imminent death.
