Kingfisher – Author Mark Heathcote


What if God were a Kingfisher

& you, I was a fish, would you hide

Would you go, play, hide & seek?


Since I have welcomed, death.

Of death, I have no fear…

So I welcome the Kingfisher of souls.


To snap me up when my time is near

Sure enough, I shall not fight

Struggle as he holds me mid-air in flight


Fish gills shut tight; let mouths be, opened

Let every fish scale suit of armour fall

When it’s time to answer his inanimate, call.
