Meet Lucky


Blog Posted:1/23/2013 10:13:00 AM

*

I'm camped on the shoreline in a very thick bog area,

surrounded by sounds of crickets, frogs and other voices of nature.

A turtle basks just above the water's surface.

For hours I relax and peacefully view it,

but alas, this is all in my imagination.

The turtle has been basking in its large fish tank aquarium,

where at times I will gaze upon it for hours, my mind a wandering.

Meet Lucky

*

Lucky is a red ear slider terrapin who currently lives with me.

For all intents and purposes, let's refer to Lucky as a she.

I named her Lucky because it was lucky that I just so happened to be

at the same place where Lucky was abandoned so very cold heartedly.

In a small fish bowl, on the curb, left out with the trash was she,

but I happened by, saw her and rescued poor Lucky.

She now lives a life of relative comfort and safety

in the 55 gallon aquarium that I have provided for she,

where she can bask on her float or go swimming freely,

or forage through the gravel searching for something to eat.

Lucky's stay with me however is only temporary.

When she has grown large enough to successfully compete

among other foragers in a habitat more naturally,

that will be the day when I inevitably set Lucky free

to live the rest of her life the way it was intended to be.

I would prefer however in all honesty

a man made pond on someone's private property,

perhaps stocked with fish, frogs and other turtles already

where routine feedings occur regularly.

Should anyone know of such a place that would freely

accept a red ear slider turtle into their sanctuary,

I would appreciate it if you could somehow inform me.

Heartfelt appreciation would also be extended from my gal Lucky.

    My brother in NC has two ponds, spring fed, with trout. Don't know much about terrapins and what climate they prefer.

    Perhaps an aquarium would take Lucky. I am sure there she would have a nice life.

    You have a kind heart and I know you will find her a great home. Wish I could help, but I seem to be the local kitty rescuer. They all end up at my door. Love, Joyce

    You have a big heart and she truly is Lucky. But I'm sorry I can't help... All I have are the Missouri and Mississippi Rivers.
