The Kingfisher

African Pied Kingfisher.
Pied: mottled, often used in poetry to suggest “new spirit”.
Kingfisher/Fisher King, a symbol of a holy quest in poetry.

In essence, this beautiful new image by Orokie captures a moment where youth and nature are linked: the relaxed limbs of the body and the contemplative, listening face are absorbed by the persistent song of a tiny bird. A moment of fixed intensity in a world of watery and cloudy flux.
