Star-Fins--By Suzanne Delaney--United States


Seaside holiday,
a child sculpting
from sand, a sea turtle

all consuming details
a geometric shell,
carved by a stick, four
well placed fins
round black eyes
of two, worn- flat sea pebbles

If an unseen force
was to animate
these cartoon-cute features
and sea-ready fins,
would it race for the breakers,
not looking back to see who was
its Creator ?

Suzanne Delaney is a retired Registered Nurse. A resident of Hawaii, USA she was born in Tasmania. She now has time to pursue her passion for writing poetry, creating collages and for traveling.


  1. Hi Suzanne. Welcome to the Whispers site. I am honored to have read such a good piece of poetry. It is a well-written and artistic poem that takes me back to when I was a child making images out of the sand on the beach. Thank you for sharing and please feel free to stop by my website at www.tgbtgpublictions.com as I would love to read and publish some of your poetry in Creative Inspirations.


  2. I agree with you Maurice. Suzanne is a talented writer. She would be a wonderful edition to Creative Inspiration. Suzanne, thank you for sharing your poem with us.


  3. Hi Suze -

    You are so unique in your conjurings and bring them to great poetry. I'm so happy to read this and just sorry I've been gone too long.
