The higher beings

The husband and wife moved through the world. They were not noticed, and when they were they were not noticed for themselves. They were a sudden darkening of the sky or a landslide or a wooded hill where no trees were before. They were massive, full of mass and weight and enormity. They were not for human sight, nor understanding.

The husband and wife, in turn, knew little of people. They saw the big things about the world: that giraffes moved in mile-wide herd formations, and the pattern of storms at sea, and what strange shapes the sand dunes painted.
