V. The River that flows


The River is no ghost
Flowing to the sea
The River is Jade

The Sea is no ghost
Feeding us all
The Sea is an Emerald

The Heat is no ghost
Oppressing us all
The Heat is Ruby red

The City is no ghost
Embracing us all
The City is a clear crystal

And most of all Death
Taking us home
Death is black Onyx

The River that flows
Over rocks and mud
Flows over me

The Sea that nourishes
With fish and salt
Nourishes me

The Heat that drains
With oppressive strength
Drains all of me

The City that lives
Giving life and love
Lives on in me

The City that dies
Taking life and love
Dies always in me 

Are we ghosts now?
Are we dead now?
Are we Real now?
How can we know?
