Turtle Walk

People with meager wages
unloading boxes by the river passage
a stranger comes
who believes in sages
kith and kin of some unknown friend
gathered there
to see farewell
cloud bursts with anger
then a sudden rain
there is nothing to explain
after what happened
a turtle come aside
out of river
an hide
there was nobody to see that sight.
