#NewThisDay Writing From My Photo Stream
For two days in the yard, turtles trek across the field from the river, or maybe the brook, to lay eggs. Yesterday, a snapper. Today, a much smaller painted turtle. Here's an excerpt from a delightful poem by Kay Ryan, "Turtle." You can listen to her read here, courtesy of the Poetry Foundation where I found it.
