Private Photo I took in 2018 at Lake Lynn in Raleigh NC where there is a large turtle population.
Love the Turtles
What do poaching
have in common?
It is hard to hear this
for my heart breaks
placing hand over heart
I swear to make certain
to see this through.
Several species of turtles
here’s a few:
all turtles with a purpose.
Empowered by our own abilities
we can make a difference
sharing the facts
taking a stand
telling our fellow people
taking a ride to the ocean-side
caring for those more vulnerable
While walking along the lake side
there were so many turtles
enjoying their domains
kept in splendid care
signs posted “Do Not Feed the Wildlife”
trusting that people are following those rules.
Left to their own
creatures fare well
people kind can help by not harming
not feeding when they ought not
leaving plastic stuffs to float out to the waters
all that mess to bring about bother and death
when it is time to show our love
peace has to come
I am certain.
