Storyboard Text

  • Her father embarked at sunrisewith a flask of water, a samurai swordin the cockpit, a shaven headfull of powerful incantationsand enough fuel for a one-wayjourney into history
  • but half way there, she thought,recounting it later to her children,he must have looked far downat the little fishing boatsstrung out like buntingon a green-blue translucent seaand beneath them, arcing in swatheslike a huge flag waved first one waythen the other in a figure of eight,the dark shoals of fishesflashing silver as their belliesswivelled towards the sun
  • and remembered how heand his brothers waiting on the shorebuilt cairns of pearl-grey pebblesto see whose withstood longestthe turbulent inrush of breakersbringing their father’s boat safe
  • And though he came backmy mother never spoke againin his presence, nor did she meet his eyes
  • And sometimes, she said, he must have wonderedwhich had been the better way to die.
