Incense stick - the Poem

Updated on October 4, 2012

Incense sticks are burning bright

The fragrance is flowing light,

Some soul around is flying tight

Emotions ripe and fluid fright.

The dazzling flame at the pick

Sweeping wind makes it trip,

The peek-a-boo orange flip

Little glow burning wind whip.

The delicate scent flowing

The fresh flowers adorning,

The glory so much alluring

For some death is progressing.


Slow poisoning of some soul

Death of aromatic life crawl,

Braided misty smokes howl

Caravan of teardrop to bowl.

Garland of flowers fresh décor

For death is precious ardour,

The incense sticks wait fervour

To die spreading scent armour.

Death is the cocoon surrounding

Inhale aroma till the heart is burning,

After me exist in past tense feeling

You will still have my aroma reeling.


Inside your core of existence

Everywhere you go my prudence,

Follow your shadow with continuance

Let the incense sticks burn to credence.

My heart is an incense stick

For you, I burn till the last flick,

When the story is over

I rest in the misty aroma in your heart.

Please burn the stick another ……..

The wind will carry the aroma till the infinity.


Allow me to linger when

Someplace besides… ,

the fragrances will prevail…..

Ashes of death wing to aromatic décor.

Let me burn more every instance

To love you …

To be inhaled by you

To die for you….

Incense to sense you till the time will tire !!!!

      i may be off base here in my interpretation because, as flashmakeit mentioned - it's quite unique..

      personally i find the sense of smell to be the most sensual - almost moreso than touch.. certain smells can take you certain places over and over - it's magical..

      and sexy..

      Very creative use of the incense stick in association with lingering on after death. I like to patchouli sticks. I've always loved that smell.
