    WOW just wow!!!!
    The more I read the more it becomes interesting, and I did not want it to end. I think I’ve heard Selkie’s story before, but it also reminded me of Scylla from the Greek Mythology.

      Thank you Star. :) Yeah, there are so many similarities throughout individual countries' folklore/mythology. The interesting thing about this one is that this Selkie isn't a monster, per se, but you're right, there are some reminders here of Scylla. I wouldn't mind writing about her actually!

    Daniel, love this. Being a Pisces I feel akin to water poems. I love the footnote also, Interesting..

    Mystical, ethereal, mythical, educational and thoroughly swoony! Excellent stuff and I'm glad to see it nominated :-) x

    The only time I've ever heard of the Selkie was in a short scary story, so it was a little bit different lol. This is beautiful.

      Yeah, most of my myth poems are a little on the 'horror' side, so I wanted to write something a little less predictable! Thank you Liz. :)
