enjoy

The match flares.
Bright flame touched to the wick,
the candle springs to light.
The smells of burning,
wood and sulphur,
wax and string, rise up.
The smoke of offering
reaching from me to
the comforting,  
 all loving, selfless dark, that
calls me to stillness and
to knowledge, and to union.             
The odour of the incense
of match and candle
 wafts away, borne
by an agency we cannot see.
There is naught but me
and the darkness
until in time or out
there is only the Dark.

Well written and yes I have a memory or two of incense in the church but for me it always seemed to be more pagaism inclined as compared to the beauty of all the flickering candles.

But there is Light in these fragrant lines: well done, John. I love incense. Perhaps it started being that I grew up Catholic and remembered the incense in church ... there was hope, there. Also, candles, always light to dispell the darkness. Have plenty of both. :) Adding to library, thank you!

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.
