World Turtle Day



[Did you know that today is World Turtle Day? Well, I do....now. So let's celebrate! One of my favorite animals. Beautiful, elusive, interesting, and prehistoric. The turtle is all 10s in my book]

Mostly short,
In greens and brown.
They travel slowly
All about town.
A long neck,
And inquisitive eyes,
They're looking for food.
And that's what they spy.
A bit of lettuce, 
A bit of fruit. 
This prehistoric animal
Is traveling by foot. 
They live for years
Past you or I,
They live in solitude
Watching the world travel by.
And so some truths
They truly know.
About how the world turns.
And where we'll all go.
But they'll never tell
Not you or I,
Because we're not turtles
So to us, they just lie. 
Oh to be a turtle
Traveling by sea, lake, or land.
Strutting ever so slowing.
Like the slow tempo of the band. 
Alas a slow pace,
Is just the ace
They need in this place.
To catch all that occurs
All that transpires
A turtle never stops.
Never tires.
No, no, ever onward
To new adventures and beyond.
A turtle is always here
Until it's finally gone. 

[Happy World Turtle day!!!]
