cigar to incense, wonder and worship

"...a voice like smoke, from cigar to incense, where it's full of wonder and worship..."

Of course that quote is describing Bob ("prophets always deny being prophets")Dylan.
Of course that quote is by Bono.

That connects me to the classic quote attributed to Bach:

"I smoke my pipe and worship God."


It was Bruce Cokburn (another Bono favorite...and yours if you live in this zone of the internet)
who once envisioned dust and diesel as incense:

"Dust and diesel
Rise like incense from the road
Smoke of offering
For the revolution morning
