Mesmerized

insence-smoke

I sat transfixed
no, mesmerized
watching the incense smoke
curl
stream
disperse
then vanish completely.

The sweet, heady scent
invited me
into its dimensions
delighting
enveloping
embracing
my weary soul.

The blithe ribbons floated as beautiful
agonizing prayers
swirling towards heaven
lovely
lonely
sacred
wisps of incense smoke.
