Father's Final Words

So this is what it all comes down to:
the three of us, knee deep in the sea,
hold hands like school children
crossing the street. Small, indifferent
waves break around us, their white froth
mimicking the clouds above. My sister
offers up words I rarely hear from her,
addressing God as if she knows Him.

[Hata Bildir]
