Watching wisps of smoke rise,
Dancing gracefully in the air.
There’s beauty as they strive to blend.
Arms reaching out to all within reach,
Surrendering self to unite as one.
They enhance with the scents they send.
Weaving a calm serenity with their dance,
Inspiring patience as the flame burns its course.
The fragmented rush within embraces the mend.
As I choose to mindfully pay attention to incense burning before me, I was inspired to relate to the beauty before me. Touching all my senses, I drifted with the sight and scent to calm the rush within and reconnect with the world around me.
