Turtles

Turtles

Turtles on the Pacific coast
          that emerge from the sea
that scurry across the wide flat beach
          that burrow into the soft sand
and there lay their eggs
          in the white moonlight

This is a fertile universe
          that so longs for life
that nothing is allowed to die
          not energy
not love
          nothing
