The ice queen's breath

Her name was wind
and she was a cruel companion
licking crystalline snow
then tossing it
with perfect recklessness,
relentlessly into our eyes.

Her name was wind
and we bowed before her, squinting
only dreaming of having the power
to banish her.

very nice pic (it looks as if he is in a surf in the ocean)

except he is in the surf of wind

Lady 'Wind' and snow and 'Bela'

Oh, oh....

Bela and wind, fire and air... you're right, that does spell trouble! But where to find some earth and water to balance them?
