Slow Burn Cinnamon Stick

No comments

Shaky, and anxious

mind wanders

grab a stick of cinnamon

hold the lighter steady

watch the flame take hold

breathe deeply

ahhh

calm fascination

as the stick turns to ash

the white-grey smoke

travels through each crevice

have to reignite the flame

every few minutes

try to not burn fingers

while lighter carefully in hand

each breath more deep

more calm, the mind

at peace, in the moment

the smokey scent engulfs

the room and lingers

after the final piece

can no longer burn

the dark inside the body

hidden within the soul

suppressed by

the slow burn cinnamon stick
