take off your shoes

Earth's crammed with heaven
And every common bush afire with God
But only he, who sees, takes off his shoes
The rest sit around and pluck blackberries.
  - Elizabeth Barrett Browning


  1. Love this. Came across this once before but didn't realize it when we were talking about it earlier. Now this is a statement worthy of pondering for a while. Thanks for sharing.

  2. mmhmmm...remind me not to pick blackberries.
