WordPress – #Daily Prompt – Nest

Once a year, the turtles return to nest

Swimming in just below the ocean’s crest

Struggling to find that piece of sacred land

The place of their birth up on the sand

Laying eggs in hope that some will survive

It is the struggle on which these turtles thrive

Until new born babies run with beaks agape

Fleeing back into the waters to make their escape

A mother watches from afar with broken heart

As she watches her babies as they rapidly depart

Across the night skies in gleaming beams of light

This is the turtles journey of hope and plight

Turtle Bay is filled with endless moments of beauty

It’s an unforgettable piece of this world’s legacy

Libentia - Sea Turtle
