Turtle

TURTLE 

An  insouciance
left indeterminate
in terrains where 

life needs no booming 
bluff and baloney.
A rare  prototype
 
of a random perception
of evolution pitted
against fast-forwardness.

A gentle memory 
peeping out of the tangles
of bare subsistence.

    I thought this line was so clever: evolution pitted against fast-forwardness. Yes, it IS!!

    Hi Jag! Love your take on the turtle. They always remind me to take life one step at a time - one will get there eventually. :-) Good luck in the contest. I do not visit often here on PS and only support a few poets' contests. I now have a fb page, Let's Talk Poetry & Prose - if you wish to join us. Love, Su

    I also read this nicely written poem in sloooow motion as I celebrated the well-scribed entry! You have now caused my mind to contemplate if turtles are truly random in their activities...I suspect as one of the oldest moving creatures they would have much to say about your poem....hahaha...glad to see you writing again...
