Things Not In Us

there are things not in us, but
in that space which is
between, or around, above-beneath us,
things
that are not measured
or even detectable by any thing
which we can call a sense--
only they are sensed, we feel, by
something
far more beautiful or more buried
than
any sensing; they are scented in the
quiet pale-gray stillness of a
sunlessly
murmuring tree-speaker,
when we are most comfortably
alone.
if there is a God (as i
believe), perhaps these All are
Him, and our
deepest of prayers not so much uttered
as rather seen
by the eyes behind our eyes.
