We took sweet counsel together, and walked unto the house of God in company...Psalm 55: 13

Wild Turkeys congregate,
Together gathering in a flock
They love to communicate,
Whether they fly or walk...

Their house of God
Upon earths chapellany
Is where'er they may trod
In each others company...
Poetry by me, AJP

I shot this picture yesterday morning as the wild turkeys were rounding the bend to walk up our driveway and they definitely were in close communication with each other... Yes, there is such a word as chapellany found in Webster's revised unabridged 1913 Edition...It gives its translation as:

"A chapel within the jurisdiction of a church; a subordinate ecclesiastical foundation. "

    Such rich shades of green. This scene reminds me of an oil painting done by my husband's grandfather, who was a famous Canadian landscape artist.
