KINGFISHERS REST 2 – Relax before you stress. KINGFISHERS REST
Learn to rest KINGFISHERS REST
Relax after play
Peace of mind
“The Kingfisher and patience”
Listen to the Kingfishers intent
Azure blue darting through an overcast sky
Direct to the edge of the water without a sigh
All efficient in a committed landing
Morsels of food the passion in his branding
With a gleaning eye in the mid-morning vision
No table manners
Just a very quick decision
Purposeful and with natural intent
Legs straight and small neck bent
Beaks his prey between quick breaths of life
Doesn’t have to consider a stressed and fearful wife
No brownie points to earn
This is his life
Conserved energy to burn
Fly back to a place of rest
One thing I’ve noted
He is not gifted with the best
No free will to act out love
No degrees from school
Made to fly above
No culinary skill
No taxi to the event
The DNA yes
To pleasure on a kill
His visible accent
The wonders of fauna and its thrill
Gifted with patience and skill to feed
Knowledge to only know of its need
The lesson I learn as I observe the flight
Patience in waiting
A simple delight
As with “Kingfishers Rest 1″ this inspiration came to me as I walked beside my studio in Warkworth, New Zealand. In the weeks before I had observed the antics of Kingfishers waiting patiently. They had keen anticipation, a lightning-fast flight path to its meal, a feed of worms on the banks of the river and back to rest. A McDonald’s eatery, a steakhouse, an ice-cream, a diet of pleasure for a hungry family. Who knows its vision? I knew there was a pattern here so I was always on the opportunity to capture what I was seeing. This little one did not let me down. For about 15 minutes we eyeballed each other and he was just content with me being there as was I with him. My bonus was a unique pleasure, inspired by a unique capture. KINGFISHERS REST
The lesson I have learned from this is patience, rest, and pleasure. While waiting for good things to come my way, I will attempt to do the right thing according to the circumstances I find myself in. This is very much active participation in exercising my faith in the Divine Law as written in The Constitution from Heaven. The manufacturer of the natural instincts in these birds reflects the wisdom in all things made and this day I saw patience without stress and anxiety.
I hope you understand my insight here because it has given me a feeling of greater peace and freedom to enjoy and be grateful for what is in front of me. All my needs will be supplied so I don’t need to be anxious or fearful about wasted negative emotions. Like the Kingfishers in this photo, I am learning to trust, with patience, that my feed will come despite not seeing it in advance. But then I do see it in advance because I trust what my father has said, “He will supply all my needs” and he has proven himself to be trustworthy. The Kingfisher has an inner knowing, the food was there, and he exercises his knowledge to make the desired tucker then came back to rest.
This story should be told on interior decorated walls from New York to LA, Paris to London and Kingfisher 2 should urge you to stop and see, to meditate on Gods goodness, take some time out to rest and exercise gratitude for what you have as you enjoy a common beauty given for all.
