The Wake.

Colours. Blue. White. Black. Yellow. Orange. Red. Gold. Sounds. Chants. Music. Trumpets. Cymbals. Shuffling feet. Chatter. Big noisy fans. Plastic wrappers and tablecloths caught in the wind. Smell. Incense. Flowers - what type? Sandalwood. Grass after rain. Sight. The coffin. The body. The people. The priests. The paper house. The set of clothes dressed over a chair. Touch. Wood. Plastic bags. Paper plates. Joss sticks. Emotion. Solemn. Laughter. Tears. Silent strength. And when all this is over, what shall we do?
