Selkie’s Song by Finola Scott
A poem about love. ‘Selkie’s Song’ published in NVP Anthology ‘The Second Tide’
From the depth of the blue night
Slip sliding back
beneath the white crests
of sheets, shivering,
I feel you barely waking, reach out
and pull me in close.
Snuggled up I’m anchored.
Your sea-serpent arms hold me firm,
your rock solid body sleeps on
my bed a harbour.
Tangled in your salty limbs
I ride out every storm
in this safe haven.
by Finola Scott
