Seeing that large turtle

make its way across the pond

reminds me of the time

my young granddaughter asked me

if I thought he’d mind

if she hitched a ride.

I smiled then and I smile now

as that question makes its way

 across the waves of time.

  1. I smiled too! What a sweet and innocent question.
