Turtle Season

Turtle Season

written by: Clive Grewcock


I see turtle season has begun.
The elderly amphibians
winding down the streets.

Some in groups,
mostly in couples,
gazing in windows –

stretching their
loose necks,
looking lost.

With wrinkled faces,
shiny heads
and exposing tender legs.

Bulging leather satchels
acting as protective shells
as the summer fades.

So they will disappear.
