“… the perfect stillness of the night

was thrilled by a more solemn silence.

The darkness held a presence

that was all the more felt

because it was not seen.

I could not any more have doubted

that He was there, than that I was.

Indeed, I felt myself to be, if possible,

the less real …”


Rudolph Otto, as quoted by John Van Sloten

less real than You

Who Is

i am


only as You

are Real


i could not be

did You not give me



i could not breathe

did You not give me



i could not know

did You not give me



less real than You

Who is

i am


am only real

in You


The Less Real
