Selchie

by MichaelFirewalker

from the depths
of cerulean blood
you tore me
from the teal of the sea
where I was what I am

you came to hunt
drag my shell and my sand
and the deep weed that formed
these wet webbed hands

here in your dry
your naked land cries
under thunder from sky

and I fall on my knees
kiss the sweet grass of Eire
where you stand
as the one you were then
when all we could be
first began

now it begins once again
on the mote-circled mound
of your last signal fire
beneath the great stroke
of your famous broad sword
do I pour out a green life of mine
loosing our shared sacred light
into the long ocean sands
risen skyward by hope
written by faith inside time
