__I see with young eyes, an old mirror. Here, I hope to offer... as I see.

This morning's six o'clock walk.
__Spurred by a common curiosity, though perhaps for different reasons... I, and a Snapping Turtle... traveled the shoreline. Its head continually bobbing below, then above the 'top-water.'

morning walk
along this ponds quiet shore
a turtles head

I thank you both, John and Lorraine; but LL, those 'Snappers' can be considered 'pretty ugly.'

The image reminds me of a stroll by a river I took in England. There was a majestic looking white swan who shadowed me for longest time. I didn't know if it wanted food, or just a jogging companion.

I have had a yellow warbler follow me in the woods, but never a turtle.

From growing up around animals, I know that other creatures are as curious as humans.

Nice poem!
