A Song of Storms: February 2022 Issue Table of Contents
Updated: Jul 22, 2022
The wind and the waves
echoed her heart-
constant and pure.
The storm was her soul-
wild and untamed...
~ A. Bergloff
There is a music to storms. They are compositions that sweep over us and surprise us with their uncontrolled beauty. The wild unpredictability of storms teach us to respect the fury of nature while understanding that we are not always in control of our fates, yet we can face the storm and defy it.
In this issue, we have collected four stories and four poems that explore some element of weather, from rain to wind to snow and beyond.
So, please enjoy this first in our series of "weather-works" for 2022, and as always, dear readers...
