I never saw a moor;
I never saw the sea;
Yet know I how the heather
looks,
And what a wave must be.



I never spoke with God,
Nor visited in heaven;
Yet certain am I of the spot
As if the chart were given.

-- Emily Dickinson

Ah! cette photo est vraiment très belle. Mais, hier tu as raté le train à vapeur qui a passé à plusieurs reprise derrière chez nous. Dire que je n'étais pas au courant de l'événement et donc je n'étais pas prête avec l'appareil photo. Trop dommage. La loco noire, un wagon rouge, un wagon bleu, un wagon vert, un wagon marchandise. Nostalgie...nostalgie...

That is a grand photo. Sending prayers up to heaven, guided by strong and sturdy limbs.

One of my favorite poets! And that picture taken looking up through the branches to the blue sky was gorgeous! Carla

Wonderful view. One good reason to always look up. You never know what you might see.

Wonderful post. I really enjoyed the poem. You always have the best posts. I've had a horrible cold and have not been on the computer a lot this week. Just trying to catch up on all my favorite blogs.
