in folk tales, the clouds are guardian dragon spirits from Waiendil (the sun of Næçma) that routinely leave the star to watch over and protect the planet

when it was cloudy outside it was common to hear a Næçmar say "tsiv wellan níshevada" ("the dragons are out")(BE.3rdPPL out cloudNOM.PL.)

and when the sky was clear, it was said that they had returned to Waiendil, and that's why it burnt brighter that day, because the dragons were there, and their fire warmed up Næçma

when it rained it was said that the dragons were mourning one of their own, and their tears contained its soul, which returned to the soil as all living beings to become a part of Næçma itself, only to be reincarnated after joining the Heart-Sea (Shakajheg) into a new dragon

this led to the further belief that water holds the memory of the history of the world; the saying "agæsiv aion" (the water remembers)(REMEMBER.3rdPSG water) comes from there

when Jællén (Næçma's moon) was barely visible behind a veil of clouds, you could say "tsyn Jællén shoriænyna ten þole" ("the moon is veiled by wings")(BE.3rdPSG moon WING.DAT.PL by VEIL.PastPART)
