Grey, green and brown.
The colour of poverty, neglect and bad feeding.
Yellow Jessamines are watered by the River of Life
Their petals become tinted with a glassy veneer
Every creature ever born on this earth wanders this land.
The pale green dewy river emits heat,
as if to allow praise to rise to the Heavens
Cave encompassing a swamp
Poison ivy and brittle roses.
Beautiful beds of lavender.
You will believe the swamp never existed.
