And every common bush afire with God . . . "
from the poem "Aurora Lee"
by Elizabeth Barrett Browning
"So the poet's habit of living should be set
on a key so low and plain,
that the common influences should delight . . . "
from the essay "The Poet"
Ralph Waldo Emerson
I also like the way that in this photograph
the entire heavens are afire with God!
