    A filament of His miracle

    Hi,

    I am at a loss at what a filament of His miracle could mean; can anybody help me please?

    Yes, we were of one mind about that. In the utmost depths of our imaginations it was clear to us that these supremely solitary objects, if not positively cast out of thought, had been abandoned.
    But by whom? My friend and I had sometimes talked of the divine Abandoner; and also (if one can, and may, distinguish between mood and person, between the dream and the dreamer) of It. Here was the vacancy of His presence; just as one may be aware of a filament of His miracle in the smiling beauty that hovers above the swaying grasses of an indecipherable grave-stone.

    Walter de la Mare, The Vats, 1923

    Thank you very much.

    I think it means "a small amount of His miracle".
