Spirit Animals #3: Turtle

May 5, 2010

I was able to go hiking yesterday in the Marin Headlands and had some great connections to the wildlife there. I saw a hawk for the second consecutive time I’ve been in that area, and he seemed to be idling near me. I also saw a bluebird that swooped down close to investigate us. I’ve researched these animals and their meanings and they really seem to have approached at precisely the appropriate moment. I plan to meditate on them and have their poems up next week for you all. Enjoy. Peace and Love.


turtle, prodigy of protection
shell of passive introspection
hidden inside himself where time is slow
stop just to feel the currents flow
rushing waters will come to rest
your emerald head reemerges refreshed
glimpsing such peaceful eyes as yours
who never condemn and always adore
invite me into the great cerulean sea to explore
