Kingfisher

Slow lowland rivers,

pulling nets for a living,

those halcyon days.

  1. “Halcyon” is one of those words that just evokes such good feeling. It also slides right off the tongue. Great photo! I hope the fish was returned to the water though.

    1. The fish, a fine barbel, was returned to the water about 25 years ago after a river survey. I believe halcyon is ancient Greek for kingfisher, and indeed the genera name for the kingfisher family is halcyon.
