    Ah… I had to look up what a Selkie was Christine, quite fascinating, and therefore your Haiku is wonderful…..

      Thank Ivor. It was mentioned in a novel I am reading and I had to look it up too. I thought what I read was charming 🙂

    Awww…. Greatly penned haiku, and it made me smile that you used a stamp from The Faroe Islands as an inspiration 🙂

      It’s funny I was thinking of you when I wrote it! I just learned about Selkies from a book I’m reading. It’s folklore in Scotland and it’s islands and Scandinavia. 🙂
