A Change of Weather by Deborah Sage


Her sorcery-cloaked sisters come seeking her spells.


The Sea Witch asking for

An ocean tempest for a prince’s doom and

A mermaid’s voice.


The Ice Queen willing

To pay for a shard to pierce an eye and

Freeze a heart.


The Enchantress in need of

Gloom and rain to seal a merchant’s fate and

A daughter’s loss.


Stirring storms of fire and ice,

Water and wind,

Shadow and light,

The Weather Witch obliges.


Chanting

Meteorological incantations, she conjures

Cold nights for lost children and

Dry wastelands for sightless lovers,

Sea squalls to drown sailors and

Blizzards to blind travelers.


Her cauldron brimming with

Gale and flood, she speaks the spells

Her sisters seek. Brewing

Air and atmosphere,

The Weather Witch obliges.




Deborah W. Sage is a native of Kentucky, USA. She has been published in Enchanted Conversation, Eternal Haunted Summer and Literary LEO. A former business executive who after years of being committed to the bottom line is gaining equilibrium in her psyche through her endeavors in folklore.
