A Turtle’s Walk In the Rain

Our car almost ran over a turtle this morning making her way across the road. It was wet and cold. She seemed slower than the usual thoughts of how a turtle proceeds, coming out of one wood to cross the road to another wood. My husband stopped to take her off the highway where cars tend to speed. A small gesture to the wild life that seem confused by the growing houses that have taken over. I am sure she did not thank him for it, but nevertheless we were thanked by saving one life that was out this shimmering morning.

About christineemmert

Words have been part of my life. First the spoken word in my time as an actress and increasingly the written word in my shift to writer. I write across the genres, but mostly as a playwright and poet. My interest as my life extends is in the realm of tethering myth to the mundane reality where I live. In this vein I have expanded into stories and novels. Presently I look at how myths taken from past cultures can affect us today. Hence my novella of Lilith which is out on Kindle . I live in the Eastern Woodlands where I try to incorporate nature into my many writing projects. We are so in danger of losing that link to our very planet!
