The Emancipation of Timothy Turtle...

 Hesitant,( my gift of turtle),
  Timothy headed out
digging into sand for safety
Will he head up or down?
No one will know.
While I played with rocks
Timothy made a quick get-a-way.

He's lovely, isn't he?
I also like playing with stones near a river or beach.

As long as he doesn't surprise you again! Although if he came back to bite your husband in the bum I'm sure you wouldn't mind.

Timothy made a quick getaway? Really? Bwahahahahahahaha.

Have a terrific day. :)

I love this post, and your narration of it.

Sandra said...

i bet he made a swift getaway because he thought you were building this to sacrifice him upon it.

Timothy can now flee to the deeper waters and grow big and strong.
