Whispers of wind
of the past
and scattered thoughts
of a different time and place
through her mind...
~ A. Bergloff
In nature, it is the wind that brings in storms, and it is also the wind that clears them away. Wind brings change, and there is beauty in the idea that through the worst storm, the wind will come and usher in the clear blue skies afterwards.
This month, The Fairy Tale Magazine is presenting four stories and four poems in the third issue in our series of "weather-works" for 2022 that explore some element of weather - from rain to wind to snow and beyond.
So, please enjoy, and as always dear readers...
