periwinkle, originally uploaded by pilgrimgirl.

Some keep the Sabbath going to church;
I keep it staying at home,
With a bobolink for a chorister,
And an orchard for a dome.

Some keep the Sabbath in surplice;
I just wear my wings,
And instead of tolling the bell for church,
Our little sexton sings.

God preaches, -- a noted clergyman, --
And the sermon is never long;
So instead of getting to heaven at last,
I'm going all along!
~Emily Dickinson

A beautiful Sunday meditation. The picture of the flowers is enthralling. You're getting pretty good with that camera!
