Earth's crammed with heaven

This tree is outside my bedroom window and what I see when I first wake up. Today it looks like it is lit on fire and it reminds me of the lines from the poem, Aurora Leigh by Elizabeth Barrett Browning ...

Earth’s crammed with heaven
And every common bush afire with God;
But only he who sees takes off his shoes.
The rest sit round it and pluck blackberries
And daub their natural faces unaware.
"LORD, I have heard of your fame; I stand in awe of your deeds, LORD. Repeat them in our day, in our time make them known..." (A prayer of Habakkuk the prophet - Habakkuk 3:1-2)
