and the foam of fear covers his cheeks
and the air that follows him has the form of an ocean
and the smell of vague buried rot.
Everyday an ashen color descends from the sky
which the doves must spread over the earth:
the rope woven by oblivion and tears,
time, which has slept long years inside the bells,
the old suits all bitten, the women who see the snow
the black poppies that no one can contemplate without
everything falls to these hands I raise up
in the midst of rain."

BURNING INCENSE OUTSIDE - You have to promise that you'll be safe and always burn your incense in a sturdy and stable container with a cup of water nearby. Do not burn incense while camping and during a burn ban. Only you can prevent forest fires.
I had been gifted some Blackbird incense years ago, but couldn't remember the name of the fragrance. It was Ploom! This little sampler set is the perfect way to try out Blackbird if you like more autumnal, dark scents. Love me some Blackbird.
Ordered the sample pack as a stocking stuffer and it arrived speedily at my door amidst covid 19 shipping issues. Had plenty of time to prep my gift and was a perfect surprise for my incense lover.
We are long fans of Blackbird and this latest sampler doesn’t disappoint. This is the most creative, luxurious incense I’ve found in years and consider it a staple at home, in sacred spaces and spiritual/meditation practice, and frankly the only modern incense to consider. Thank you Blackbird for another incredible supply!
Great way to find new scents for the home
