Wabern

Billow, waft, swirl. Onomatopoeiatically, this word sounds like how waves might propagate through a swimming pool filled with jello, suspended cornstarch or Amish apple butter, but apparently it’s used more for the lighter ethers, airs and vapors, tendrils of fog or smoke. Süddeutsche.de talked charmingly about rumors that wabern durch Bayern, waft through Bavaria.
