哈囉 燈塔

小島的最高處,蓋了一座燈塔,引領著船隻航行的方向。從清晨到夜晚,它發著光,就像在和船隻說「哈囉,哈囉!歡迎」。燈塔來了新的管理員,他為燈塔添油,擦拭燈具,記錄海象,空暇時間則用來重新粉刷燈塔,有時釣釣魚,有時開始坐在書桌前寫寫信,真希望有人可以講話──每隔幾天,他會為她寫信。今天的風浪特別洶湧,哈囉說的鏗鏘有力,透過望遠鏡,管理員看到了送來食物日用品的船隻。也看到了來陪伴他的妻子。在這裡,他們一起照顧落難的船員,也照顧生病的彼此,更和可愛的新成員展開新的家庭生活。照例,補給船又送來油、食物和新書,這次則多捎來一封信──管理員知道在這燈塔的日子不久了。燈塔換了新科技燈具,已經不需有人守著維護,管理員一家帶著行囊,輕輕向燈塔揮別「再見了」。換上新燈具的燈塔,繼續盡責地發出光芒,向船隻說哈囉,也向移居陸地的管理員一家,像老朋友般熱情地揮手「哈囉!哈囉!」。
