stars, but i'm not sure

there is no air among the stars but wind covers them with clouds, they rise and fall, some of might be blue and it is said they are shinning jewels

(after seeing comment above) i see now, okaaz is it for sure

My first guess was going to be the tides, but "faraan" doesn't fit with that, so, yeah, okaaz...

Was the usage of "niid" intentional? I thought it was assumed to be a misspelling of "nid."

I figured out the answer as well, though I forgot the Dovahzul word for "ocean." This was a clever one, and it served as a good lesson for me to remember the word "okaaz!"

i have a question about the possessive form of words. i saw that the  possessive form of you is

-ill and the word for beauty is brii so would the possessive be briil or briiiil

Good question! It'd be the first one, briil. As another example, the word for "spirit" is zii, so "your spirit" would be ziil.

I was looking back at this just to see if i could figure it out. I got it as soon as i saw the first line, "zu'u bii ol lok." I immediatly thought "oh, the ocean is blue!" All the rest just fell into the description.

I am as blue as the sky and rise and fall with time. The wind guides, but there is no air here, a lost fortune laid within.
