I introduce incense.
I sing the sweets I know, the charms I feel, My morning incense ... The sweets of Hasty-Pudding. Come ... glide o'er my palate, and inspire my soul.
-Barlow, Joel
'The Hasty-Pudding', canto1

Like Barlow's, these are also morning incense. Or I see them burning in the morning. Never in the evening. These incense sticks in my workplace burn endlessly. I've been here awhile.  The years have accustomed me to the fragrance. Thais burn incense reverently like this one does.

This post is linked with ABC Wednesday.


  1. Wonderful shots. We also do burn them and I like their fragrance.

  2. We, in India, burn a lot of incense as well.We call it 'agarbathi'. The town where I live, Mysore, is known for its agarbathi. It is a cottage industry here.

  3. Yes, incense is big part of several cultures this side of our continent.

  4. a lovely take on your culture,
    beautiful i words matching the image.

    well done.

  11. I like incense - since my teen years. When we visit the New England Peace Pagoda, I always bring a stick or two to burn. Can't wait until the snow is all gone and we can climb the road up to the pagoda and sit by the pond and visit with the frogs. :-)

    Thanks for your visit to The Pagan Sphinx. I'm so glad you came! I will follow you as well.


  12. @HelenMac, I'm glad I joined finally. I have always wanted to do ABC Wednesday since I began blogging. For some reason I never got around to it until now. I think I will enjoy this meme very much.

    @Pagan Sphinx, climb the road to the pagoda, sit by the pond and visit with the frogs - how charming! Great art blog you have going. Thanks for dropping by.
