wonderful slick shell,
Brown and golden, the color of a shell.
That perfect shaped shell.
The shell of my turtle i know too well.
You are the greenest.
The most bravest.
And fastest (i think)
And maybe the smartest too.
You slick and slide,
And glide on by,
The water is what you love.
And you swim in the water, like a dove in the sky.

lost love, sealost, lost,
When I lost a tear in the ocean, it was gone forever. With that tear, I soared the
darkness that the water hid. I felt the cold night kiss from a sea turtle lost in ones
peak. Will you find my tear cowering in it's darkness?When you find my tear, my love
will end forever.

Leatherback, murray river, matama
Hawksbill, common musk and spiny soft shell.
Loggerhead, Atlantic green, alligator snapping
Turtles are we, in every country we dwell.
The largest sea turtle reaches eight hundred pounds.
A leatherback whose love for jellyfish abounds.
Alligator snapping is one fourth of leatherback’s weight
Uses pink fleshy flap of lower jaw for bait.
The difference in turtles fascinates me.
I can picture the loggerheads running to the sea.
No matter what country you decide to make your home
There is a turtle close by, even if it is in this poem.

Like a lost sea turtle inching
Searching for the beams of moonlight
Shining a way to the sparkling blue ocean
I search for your love
And I've found it
