A TURTLE HAS A DATE A LITTLE BOY TURTLE NAMED REEFER WHILE WALKING IN THE WOODS EARLY LAST MAY, MET THE CUTEST LITTLE GIRL TURTLE COME FRIDAY HE ASKED TO HAVE A DATE WITH FAYE. THIS WAS THE BEGINNING OF THE WEEK ON A MONDAY AND AS FAST AS A TURTLE CAN GO, FRIDAY SEEMED A LONG WAYS AWAY 'CAUSE A TURTLE TRAVELS VERY SLOW! TUESDAY MORNING REEFER GOT STARTED AS SOON AS IT BECAME LIGHT, HE TOOK OFF DOWN THE WINDING DUSTY PATH THE SUN WAS SOON SHINING VERY BRIGHT. SO REEFER CRAWLED AND HE CRAWLED TAKING TIME TO STOP AND REST, HE PICKED SOME PINK WILD FLOWERS HOPED FAYE LIKED THESE THE BEST. BUT BY WEDNESDAY IT WAS PLAIN TO SEE REEFER HAD BETTER SPEED UP - OR AT LEAST TRY, THE FLOWERS WERE BEGINNING TO WILT HE WAS AFRAID THEY MIGHT DIE. THE WEEK SLOWLY DRAGGED ON LITTLE FEET ON THE HOT ROAD BEGAN TO BAKE, BUT EVERY DAY THAT WENT BY WAS ONE LESS DAY IT WAS GOING TO TAKE. MOST EVERY NIGHT ON HIS JOURNEY HE SLEPT UNDER A CORN SHOCK, IT SLOWED HIM IF HE WENT AT NIGHT HE COULDN'T SEE TO GET AROUND A HUGE ROCK. THURSDAY IT BEGAN TO RAIN THERE WAS MUD ALL OVER THE FOREST FLOOR, REEFER CRAWLED INTO HIS SHELL THE CLOUDS CONTINUED TO DUMP MORE. WHEN FRIDAY ARRIVED SUNNY AND CLEAR REEFER HAD CRAWLED ABOUT THREE-FOURTH OF A MILE, HE WAS SO HAPPY TO SEE HIS DATE THEY BOTH BEGAN TO WEAR A BIG SMILE. THEY NIBBLED SOME TENDER LETTUCE UNDER A ROTTED LOG OTHER 'GOODIES' THEY DID SEEK, HAD A WONDERFUL TIME SPENT TOGETHER DID SOME SWIMMING IN THE WATER OF A COOL CREEK. THEY DECIDED TO MEET AGAIN MAYBE IN A WEEK OR TWO, REEFER KNEW IT HAD BETTER BE THAT LONG HE HAD A LOT OF TRAVELING AHEAD OF HIM TO DO. I NEVER SAW REEFER AGAIN SINCE HE DOESN'T MOVE VERY FAST, HE NEVER CRAWLS IN THE SAME DIRECTION I HAVE OFTEN WONDERED IF HIS ROMANCE DID LAST. IF I WAS A TURTLE GOING COURTING THAT SEEMED A LONG WAYS TO ME TO GO, I'D FIND SOMEONE MUCH CLOSER TO HOME IF I HAD TO MOVE ALONG SO VERY SLOW. August 22, 2008 I have helped several turtles crossing a highway and they seem to just stop, taking their time. They amber across the back yard at a very slow pace, in no particular hurry. Taking their little shells with them, they can stop to rest, then travel on. The idea to write a poem, just came to me and I put the verses on paper. They are an interesting animal to watch.

Author: Robert Submitted by: Robertbobby Cache Locked away like a priceless antique is my love for you. Dust laden letters bound by a scarlet ribbon are tucked away for safekeeping. Yellowing pictures of you and me are sealed in an album, hidden for view. Entangled in a flurry of worn-out memories always hoping I may be the one you're seeking. Giving me the feeling of stretching out my every feather.. That i feel like having that someone special near me to gaze. The trees personify as if they're slowly dancing with joy..

Don't you remember When I brought you flowers? You were unconscious It wasn't visiting hours; Don't you remember When we went to the zoo? No, it wasn't my sister I know it was you. Don't you remember That night at the lake? I put my arm around you At the church clambake; You weren't at the hospital With a deadly aneurysm And, no, you didn't visit Your brother in prison. Don't you remember When we went to the movies? You said you were home Treating your pet monkey; You never had a monkey, A giraffe or a bear You can't exorcism a ghost Who was never there. Don't you remember When I asked you to the dance? You said you were an Ambassador With no time for romance; If you don't remember I'll enlighten your mind Once you defeat the perpetrators Of international crime. And lissen real good.

Author: Joel Bjorling Submitted by: joel61436 Only a fool Will we ever be everything I imagined everything I dreamed will this longing inside ever dwindle, ever fade Why does this burning only grow stronger Just when I think it's gone away Do you know just how I'm feeling? Do you feel this way too? Do these feelings have a purpose? Or am I only a fool? And these are the reflections of my daughter, The one I hold dear. Your hands are so small, Yet you embrace so much, You hold the world in one hand, And in the other lies the love of your mother. Your eyes are so bright, They are the path to your future. Your lips deliver the words I will never forget, Your smile brings me joy, And your voice brings me laughter. These are the reflections of my daughter, The one that truely matters. I love you my daughter, With all of my heart, When my life began, You were the start. As I sit here and watch you sleep, You are so innocent, you are flawless and unique, You are my one true masterpiece. One day you will be grown, And all I will have are memories, So I will take this time to watch you sleep. You are like an angel, you are still like a rock, You are beautiful like a flower, you are your own person The reflection of my daughter. It's been like a never ending song. The ups, the downs The smiles, the frowns... It's been rough, it's been hard Our hearts and feelings have been marred. Looking back at the five months past, Like your mother says, I can't believe we've last. So many times, I've looked for a way out, And every time, I've forgotten the route. I've cried in my room wondering where to go. Those times felt like an all time low. But every time I lose my way, It seems my heart finds the words to say. Eyes dried, and thoughts behind, My heart helps my brain unwind. A map is painted in my head: A new map of what's been said. A map back to that beautiful girl, The one that made my heart unfurl. I look back into her eyes... They're prettier than the Utah skies Like gems they shine and reflect the light, The light that makes my life seem right. This coaster's been a wild ride, And I'm glad you've been here by my side. To hold my hand over all the drops, And catch our breath at all the stops. A friend once told me what we have is just noise, But what can you expect from other boys? Like it is for me, It's only what he hears, But for me, my love, it's been music to my ears.

No need to speak There is much to tell. The evening breeze Is sweet and warm, I am enchanted By your dazzling charms; I feel stardust In my eyes; If this is dream, I don't ask why. I feel magic When I look into your face; It sparkles everywhere, In every place; Take the moon, Hold it tight, As I hold you In my arms tonight.

But I think perhaps you've stolen it away. Author: unknown Submitted by: Danielle H what do you see?

How do we raise our child to be the best? Even when life puts her faith to the test How can we teach her to be better than we? How did we loose track of the love we shared? How can I act as if I never cared?

So impatiently we've waited just to sing along To some Boxcar Racer, some Blink-182 And if you're lucky, I'll sing country with you. You teach me a song, and I'll teach one back. You pick a song, and I'll switch the track, Until we find a song we can both sing, And we'll sing so loud, our ears will ring. We'll scream in the car, at the top of our lungs, Singing those songs that we've already sung: A thousand times, they never get old; Using my beautiful voice, or so I've been told... To accompany yours while you sing along. Our voices together, in endless song... Author: Noah Kadera Submitted by: Noah Kadera.
