Smoke

Languid spirals drift up
blessed sage cleansing us all
bittersweet comforts

I have often heard of lighting a bundle of sage to cleanse the room, but short of growing it myself have wondered where one might get sage.

Yes - it's like an exhalation from the soul! Very nice!

The cleaning scent of sage is a wonder. I love the photo!

Sage can have that effect. I have had the experience. Well worth the purchase price!

The only place I have ever smelled sage is in the Thanksgiving cornbread dressing I prepare.

I have never smelled it burning.

I LOVE burning sage. I actually love the smell before it's burned even better, but I love both. Lovely poem.

Sage is known as a spiritual cleanser. It's also good to drink for cold and allergies. I love it too! Its smoky aroma is intoxicating.

Your drawing is dreamy, I don't guess there is anything dreamy associated with cleansing smoke.
I learned from your nice haiku and the comments of the others.
