Right as rain you wrapped me around
and led me under raven wings
through green-stemmed ravenwood
gently along waterway, salt-marsh on paths
only known to the spring,
you led me to see the vastness of waterscape,
your boundless gooseberry canvas,
an oceanus, milkfrothed, rapture blue, pink.
your queendom, my grave.
We stood by your waves for a while
and nevermore greyed I laughed
while you knock-out-numbed me in brine
an left me kelpkissed and breathless

Sheesh, this is gorgeous.
I especially love: “your boundless gooseberry canvas.”
This leaves us all breathless! A beautiful, sensual write.
Kelp kissed and and nevermore greyed, what a life. Probably wet though? I haven’t decided if romance of this kind is fir me or not. You made it sound appealing, very nice.
to be lured by such a one as that! I thought you’d bring us to a stormy sea or mermaid … kelp kissed – you make it sound desirable…
Sounds divine … kelp-kissed and breathless 🙂💕
Oh boy, Bjorn, the location (I had to look up Mikladalur) is in the middle of the “Bermuda Triangle” of Iceland, the UK, and Norway, in a place so remote that if a selkie was going to set up residence near land that would be the place. I wonder if the Nessie ever swims out to see her, or vice versa? “you knock-out-numbed me in brine
an left me kelpkissed and breathless” ❤
Some great lines, Björn, and we sense the danger of the desire
So it was all her fault then? These guys: nothing but excuses! 🙂
Great poem Björn ! I have read about the Selkies, fascinating
sagas, but never heard it like in your an poem before :
” and left me kelpkissed and breathless
I love the gooseberry canvas, and the beautiful unfolding of the selkie’s tale… It never grows old for me.
My goodness this is good! ❤️ Especially love; “your boundless gooseberry canvas, an oceanus, milkfrothed, rapture blue, pink. your queendom, my grave.” 🙂
“kelpkissed” and “nevermore greyed”
Whoa, whoa, those last few lines, whoosh! Wonderful!!
