Treasure Island

Birgitta Heikka


Father


Like a river,
his spirit flowed
and overflowed
Fluctuating
as the current
Becalming at low tide
Erupting at high tide
Traveling infinite miles
Converging
Forming confluences
A river
Abounding in spirit
Overflowing its boundaries,
Goran.

and the sheds were all cut out;
