BASED ON A TRUE STORY TOLD BY AN OHLONE WOMAN (2009)

Share your stories, dentist they are messages from our relatives…

She was in the road clearly
mortally wounded

You could not bear
for her to be hit again
You went to lift her broken body
to a better resting place

But then; O Heavens; she lifted her head

And poured into your eyes…..

“Help!”

to which you thought;
This could not be..

And cast your eyes away and back
as any lucid dreamer must..
And there, there it came again;
“Help”, and you,
stunned beyond belief
(which happened first?)
laid eyes upon..

Her eggs
Her eggs!

A mortal wound
a gash
and there within
a cache
a stash
of perfect eggs

And so you took Her;
Mother Turtle
eggs and all;
exquisite tenderness
Mother to Mother

 

Then, knowing She was close to Passing,
You seek the advice of an elder
with intimate knowledge of Turtle Ways

 

What you must do is now made plain

And thus This Great Mother
through you
did bury her 16 perfect eggs
at the Lakeside

Even As She Herself
Had Left this World.
