Hope Offering
Offering prayer, as hope,
the flame is lit from a wick
upon a measured amount
of oil...

Then, one may surmise:
that hope may be consumed
by time....

But, "hope"
burns as a
consuming flame,
emitting traces of its essence
as an element
of wafting vapor...
by which the fragrance
of it's intended message
may be inhaled, as a healing spice
to ease the heart
and subdue
the restless, wavering mind.

May this Sweetgrass
be wafted
as a purifying manna
from the heart of one who prays
for the Greater Hope
that is Offered for the Healing
of these darkened days.
