Terence George Craddock (Spectral Images and Images Of Light)


Weaving Shadow Into Wingbeats


kingfisher spread your wings
in sudden flight above the water
be your perch rock or branches
fly free launch faith above water

“a soulhunter upon water”
plumage sparkles dazzles
soul soaring upon water
dream sharing dart visions

binocular vision colour vision
irises perceive distance piercing
compensate refraction of water
underwater reflection in hunting

able to judge underwater depths
accurately perceiving heartbeats
weaving shadow into wingbeats
fly with me swift healer of souls
