The Turtle Wanders Through The Desert While The Sea Rocks Around Inside Him

The turtle slowly lumbers through the desert. The sun heats his shell and the glistening sand surrounding him. He wanders past succulent houses and wonders how the residents survive in a place so void of water. Luckily for the turtle, he has a sea protected within his shell. The salty waves lap against the interior walls of his shell. A ship bobs up and down with the jostle of the waves.
