You lumber gracefully
on toes prehistoric
inquisitive nose upturned,
eyes inches from mine -
don't look at me,
look into me -
and I nearly drown
in two ebony pools -

The past few days we have been entertaining and visiting with the Grandparents. Monday we visited the Science Center and I had no idea this wonderful aquarium/small zoo was ten minutes from my home! I always go to the larger zoo 45 minutes away.
This Aldabra (giant tortoise) was very active and swung his great head my way and walked and climbed up the log with his front legs and peered into my eyes - his nose almost touched my iPhone. I bent down and looked right into his beautiful eyes… what a "jolt" of sensation!
