What Colour is the Moon?


imageIf you close your eyes, can you see the Moon in your mind’s eyes? Do you know what the Moon looks like now? What colour is the Moon?

The answers may or may not be straight forward. I am not sure how many people think the Moon is white or silvery. Skye sees different colours based on how new or how full the Moon is on the day. I have attached a picture he drew for this blog to explain how he perceives the Moon.

A full moon is made up of five unequal parts surrounding the Moon’s centre which he calls “Sixis”. Each part has its own colour. He has a special name in his mind for each part.

Skye can only see two colours in a new moon like today’s, i.e., a bit of green “Cicris” and a bit of blue “Mozac”. When the Moon is half full, he sees half of the “Sixis” as well. As the Moon progresses towards a full Moon, he starts seeing more colours and more parts until it reaches the full size. Then gradually, the Moon becomes less and less colourful until the next cycle begins.

The Moon always gives me a sad, but wonderful feel. It is one of the things in the world that everyone shares. I used to look at the Moon wherever I was thinking of my grandparents ten thousand miles away. Now all my grandparents are gone. What have left with me are those beautiful childhood memories …

The words from an ancient Chinese song often ring in my ears and go like this,
But why is the Moon always so bright when the loved one’s away?
We all have joys and sorrows, partings and re-unions.
The moon, it’s phases of resplendence,
Waxings and wanings—
Nothing in this world is ever perfect.
I wish a long life to us all.
Then, however far apart we are
We’d still be sharing the same enchanting moonlight.
