Kingfisher

I did not attend Amy’s funeral. Since her passing I have waited patiently
for the opportunity to visit one of the places special to us and say goodbye in
my own way.

Today my father drove me to Assateague National Seashore. It was a special
place for Amy as well as myself.

There is a place in Assateauge where a channel feeds the large ponds that
are home to countless migratory birds. Amy and I would spend entire days on
this spot, Amy saw a kingfisher in the trees overhead one day, and ever since
she was determined to get a picture of that bird.

Kingfishers can be wily, and she never got that photograph.

Today I went back to our spot. I finally said my goodbye, told her how much
I loved her and dropped my wedding band into the water.

As the ring sank into the water Amy’s kingfisher few out the brush across
the channel, gave out a loud cry and flew into the foggy sky.

Farewell, my love. Godspeed.
