My Turtle Buddies Are Back!

Come and enjoy the wildlife of the lake. My little piece of peace and how I love to start my mornings with the animals of the lake.

Is it the Loch Ness Monster I see?

I'm sunning by the lake and up comes a head.
I begin thinking about Loch Ness with dread.

One by one, heads pop up, eyes toward me.
Can't be old Nessie, too many heads I see.

I remember, sun must have addled my brain.
It's my old turtle friends coming back again.

Everyone is welcomed.

Look, there's Mossy, Bob, Red and all the rest.
Even the two soft shell's, I like them the best.

I zoom into the house, grab a box of crackers.
Need a whole package, they're quite the snackers.

Snacking with my friends.

I wade into the water, I can feed some by hand.
For all the others, I crumble crackers on the sand.
Their turtle bellies full, they begin swimming away.
But, I know they'll all be back the very next day.

I had a few toe nibbles, but I guess I didn't taste very good, They never did it more than once. I can't delete the poem with the wrong picture. It only shows in unreviewed. jm
