Turtle Spot

There’s a spot on the log
in a creek by the trail where
the turtles congregate.

They sun themselves,
and they gossip about the
minnows and the toad.

It’s straight out of a children’s
book, but it’s something my
child sees on our walks.

We stare over a bridge, but
the turtles ignore us completely
because they’ve got much more
important business to discuss.

Success! You're on the list.

Listen to “Turtle Spot.”
