Passengers on life’s journey

Together randomly

A small ferry; a rainy day

People coming home; going away

Rank and status thrown to the wind

Smells of the sea, bodies, diesel

Blended like the pasese

Rich, poor, young, old

Weak, strong, happy, sad

Bounced by swells and waves


Wrapped in colorful lavalava

Unafraid of the next surge

Undisturbed by the greys of reality

Stormy seas, relentless rain

Bodies rearranged carefreely

Seeking a space, shelter

Respite from the gales

Ready to move en masse

From boat to bus

On the journey of the day
