Sea Turtle

The lap of the oceans waves clashes onto the shore,
drenching the sandy beach in a downpour of memories.
The turtle's wisdom comes out through dance— a well-rehearsed waltz.
She watches the youth dance— the wild marimba,
swinging high and dipping low.
On a stage of sand illuminated with the rays of the sun.
The turtle slowly but surely moves on,
step by step, and the ocean’s
animals carry on the tempo.
The final eight count falls in— dance of a lifetime.
She takes a modest bow; letting the little ones show virtue.
Retiring to a float, watching her youth once again.
