Song for a turtle

The Turtle and the Pebble

In Cyprus
One morning

On a beach facing north
I discovered the turtle

Cast away on the stones
By the storm 

Her fate clearly sealed
With cellophane wrapper

The very next day
The very same place

I found her memorial 
Her image on stone 

She was riding the waves
 Towards home 



  1. beautiful stone and a moving poem.
