Under Shell Of The Tortoise

What mischief

In this land

Of the ancients

Took place here?

Indeed

What mischiefs,

Plural

As these rocks,

Have seen the sun

For ages

what creatures

What men

Took refuge

In this tiny

Shaded spot

For relief from

The sun

Or protection

from enemies,

From predators

From their own

a high refuge

From marauders

Conquistadors

From miners

From ranchers

From cavalry

From

vigilantes Tuscones

Quietly

Out waiting them

Under

The shell

Of the watchful

Wary

Tortoise

On the ridge

Sitting so

Patiently

Awaiting

The return of

Water

The giver of life

To el valle del

Rio san pedro
