Permit: Turtle on a Log

turtle sunning strawberry patch park april 24

The tree permits 

the turtle to share its space

laying in the sun

filled with God’s grace


Enjoying the 

coolness of the morn

it is a wonderful life

where the turtle was born


A peaceful environment

sharing with other wildlife

a nature filled park

there is little strife


The turtle is startled

there is laughter on the trail

he jumps in the water

a leaf becomes a veil


Again feeling safe

he crawls on the log

now sharing the space

with a frog


The park is peaceful

nature welcomes all in

a cool spring day

to be enjoyed within
