NaPoWriMo – 3/30 – I saw a turtle on Uluru

I saw a turtle

on a side of Uluru

caught in sands of time

red, hot and frozen

under a strong southern sun

surveying the land

a fractured earth wishing rain

would replenish its thirst

Turtle nods ‘palya’ to new friends 

that gulp down water 

finding solace in rare shade 

but showing respect 

to him and his ancient rock. 



I like to think I'm a story teller. I love stories. I believe the world is filled with stories just waiting to be told and learned. I enjoy travelling down the road less travelled, with my iPhone and journal in each hand. Here you'll find all my poetic musings... Enjoy!
