On a late October day,

in Athens-Clarke County,

Georgia, turtles did, I say,

sun themselves quite nicely

—–

on rocks in the Middle Oconee River.

Some of them, upon noticing the presence

of interested human observers

on the land, dove into the river, hence

—-

leaving empty, large rocks behind.

Others, however, remained where they were

and continued to absorb heat so kind

on a cool day with a brrr.
