A cryptic cryptid, Selma’s obscured
in the icy depths of Lake Seljord
through the long, dark Norwegian winters.
She surfaces during hot, quiet summers,
playing hide and seek in the fjords,
searching for love with an elusive mate,
another ferocious monster of the lake.

Izy is back with her Out of Standard prompt, which she says is a little more on the wild side than usual.
She explains that a cryptid is an animal presumed to exist by people, even though there is no valid scientific evidence to prove it is real. Today she wants us to choose a lesser known cryptid (one we did not know existed) from the Wikipedia list and write a new poem about it.
