Give ear, O ye heavens and I will speak: and hear, O earth, the words
of my mouth...stood upon a pulpit...
Deuteronomy 32:1
Nehemiah 8:4

------------------------------------------------------------------------

When Tulips speak
We must get near
To see them teach
Of God's divine glory
O'er heaven and Earth...

Give thine ear to hear
Nature's story,
For all its worth...
Where it is good
Enough to preach,
Next to wild violets
In the woods...

Jack In the Pulpit
Delivers his speech
Pure and sweet
As you sit
By his feet...
Poetry by me, AJP

---------------------------
I literally had to get down on the side of my face and ear to take this close up picture of Jack in the Pulpit....Earlier I shot the self portrait of myself with the tulips and decided to make a diptych to combine the two pictures together.
