Photographer's Note

When the fishermen return
The village rejoices
Children cartwheel across the lapping waters
And chase the scuttling crabs
Women laugh and smile
And bring forth their large tin bowls
To collect the seafarers' bounty
And in the evening
They stoke fires and sing and dance
Because their fathers will have stories
Because their husbands will be safe
Because their bellies will be full
And because the village will be whole again
When the fishermen return.
