ABC Wednesday - I.


Late again, but at least I'm here now!

This week the letter is I.

I
is for
INCENSE.

I'm very fond of incense, which comes in several forms.

There's loose incense made of powders, herbs, and gums or resins. This kind of incense is usually smouldered on glowing charcoal, producing plenty of smoke.

Then there are the more usual sticks, which again come in a seemingly endless variety of scents and sizes.

These small sticks are presented in a neat gift collection.

Now, I know you'd be disappointed if I didn't show you a dragon. I've considered naming this one Ignius! He holds a cone of incense in his front paws.

He also holds a burning cone inside himself, and the smoke pours out through his open jaws.
I think he looks a bit young to smoke!

There will be many more interesting and inventive "I" words to be found through the ABC Wednesday page. Why not investigate?

I too like incense,but i bet it is much more fragrant when it is held by a lovely dragon.

I was so afraid you wouldn't have a dragon incense burner. Woohoo! He's great!

Incense isn't my thing but I think the smoking dragon is cool!

I used to like incense, but I've really gone off strong, lingering perfumes. I do love your smokin' dragon burner though! That's really cool!

Excellent I's and I am loving the incense puffing dragon .. Puff would work too as a name tho it doesnt begin with an I ...

In this case Ignius is a better name than Idwal. Love the post.
