What Is The Colour Of The Wind?

March 3, 2010 at 09:02 (Uncategorized)

Have you ever tried looking for the wind? The wind is translucent to us as human beings, we cannot see it but we can feel it.  We feel every single breeze that slinks through our hair, soars through a window or slams a door shut.  A single touch of the wind lets us know that it is around us.  However, I was wondering what colour the wind is and here is what I think.

The wind is many colours.  The colours that blend together are like a beautiful rainbow that spreads across the sky.  The wind takes a journey all over the earth, as it travels it passes over water, through golden trees and across the lands.  As the wind blows over the ocean it sweeps up the colour blue.  Swirling across the mountain it gathers all the natural colours of brown, beige, white and black.  As the wind continues to soar around the earth it brushes through the trees leaves where it draws the olive, evergreen and bottle green colours.  Across the farm lands it collects the colour yellow from the youthful growing wheat fields as well as the pinks, purples and reds from the valley flowers.  Finally, the wind gets the colour orange from the sunset which wisps across the horizon as it says goodnight.

The wind is not just one colour.  Even though we can’t see it with the naked eye, it contains more colours than we will ever know.  The only way we can see the colour of the wind is with a little bit of imagination.
