Poem: "Religion vs. Spirituality"

This is today's freebie, inspired by [personal profile] alexseanchai.  It belongs to the Yellow Unicorns series.

"Religion vs. Spirituality"

People talk about the difference
between religion and spirituality.

Religion is about things
in the human realm.

Spirituality is about things
in the divine realm.

Religion is what you do
with other people in a temple.

Spirituality is what you do
with the gods out in the world.

Religion is what you find
pressed in the pages of a Book.

Spirituality is what you find
shining from a unicorn's flanks.
