Turtles of Padre

They come ashore at night
Under the finger nail of a moon
And lay their eggs
They are digging and moving earth
While we sleep in our tranquil dreams 
Firefly’s and June bugs fill the sky
Marshmallows over an open fire
There is time for life
Without a hint of death
And then we wait 
We wait for life to hatch
It digs it way out of the earth 
Onto the beach
And run to the sea
Predators wait
It part of this life
Some must die for other to survive
There is giving and taking in the world
We try to help them along
And forgo the giving 
But life is too fragile for all to survive
And with a blessing I bleed on your shores
And lie in your grave of destiny
For I am life
And I wait always for you.
