Re: Selkies


Ancient Ireland tells of seals, or selkies, that would shed their oily skin and change into man when on land. If you could catch a selkie's cap or oily skin, they would forget their watery world and become obedient and devoted spouses. But if they ever found their skin or cap, they'd remember their previous life and return to the sea.

Thanks for looking and, hopefully, voting!

Re: Selkies


Round
Like a circle in a spiral
Like a wheel within a wheel
Never ending or beginning
On an ever-spinning reel
Like a snowball down a mountain
Or a carnival balloon
Like a carousel thats turning
Running rings around the moon
Like a clock whose hands are sweeping
Past the minutes of its face
And the world is like an apple
Whirling silently in space
Like the circles that you find
In the windmills of your mind

Re: Selkies


I really like this one.
I wonder if there is any chance of it printing in time for St. Patrick's day?
