(I am) A Turtle

Days In The Blackberries Field

wearing my shield I
rarely leave terrarium
old lamp is my sun

*

old lamp is my sun
the big stone my only shore
glass walls surround me

*

glass walls surround me
the entire world is out there
we communicate

*

we communicate
typing on our touch screens
in our own language

*

in our own language
a knocking finger says hi
making me happy

*

making me happy
my people give me their time
when they want to play

*

when they want to play
the life becomes beautiful
i don’t want to sleep

*

i don’t want to sleep
my place is small for swimming
so I sleep all day

*
