Selkies are Scottish seal people, and are considered magical shapeshifting creatures, able to interbreed with humans. Spoken of in many old stories, the females are said to make caring wives, and the men to be charming and good lovers. If their skin is captured, they will remain on land, though more is heard about women being captured than the men. If they find their stolen skin, they will return to the sea and any mate or family therein, though remaining nearby to watch over their land-children.

The spirits of the past and present call out to those with the ears to hear. The worlds of the Kami and Mankind are not far apart, and perhaps the border is only in the mind. Primarily this was intended to be a collection of poetry inspired by and retelling some stories from Japanese mythology and feeling the path of Shinto generated while working on my first novel. However, it has become much more. Meditate upon the poems and a flower unfolds slowly before your eyes, allowing a glimpse into a world unseen.
"Excellent performance of poetry and folklore"
