Sea Born

A haiku, based on Irish sea folklore

Illustration by author

Born of sea is she.
Sometimes woman, sometimes seal,
All times the selkie.

Being Irish and loving folklore, and the sea, I’ve always been drawn to the selkie legend. Those ocean dwellers that shift between human and animal form.
