Poem for Sunday – Starfish by Joan Bentley

Starfish, strange and beautiful,
Washed up along the Shore,
Mermaid magical in concept,
Soft symmetry and form.

I’ve often thought about these
Quirky creatures of the deep –
What are their otherworldy thoughts?
I wonder if they sleep?
I stood admiring at this creature,
Maybe God’s most perfect plan –

But hang on a minute….. Yuk!
Have you seen them eat a clam?
