the tao of incense

120

. . .

the smoke streams up from the tiny red-hot tip of the incense stick
it swirls, dances, languishes, rises, traces curious calligraphy in the air
it blesses the space it swims within with perfume
it flows with the air movements and resists nothing
and when that burning ember has done its time
the smoke simply disappears into its source:
the sacred space that kept the ember alive

the perfume lingers …

this is a Life story

  1. How absolutely beautiful! What a wonderful reminder – “this is a Life story.” Warms this Heart and allows it to live in that Space of Origin – just living – just Life being lived… What total relaxation occurs with this knowing.

    And a beautiful photo too… Thank you for all your reminders Dear ml…

    Much love ~~~~~
