What is the colour of the wind?

What is the colour of the wind?


Wind is air moving and air has no colour. We cannot see wind but we can see the effects of the wind. We see the motion of the wind from the objects that the wind moves. We determine the direction in which the wind is blowing to or from by looking at the things that the wind moves like trees and flowers or even own skirts and dresses.

The wind is always associated with dust, the stronger the wind the more dust in the air. Just as the wind often moves various objects of different sizes, colours, shapes and in places like Cape Town we get winds that are strong in enough to lift a person. I would say because the wind has no colour of its own, it becomes the colour of whatever it moves or affects. So then the wind is a very colourful thing. It is the colour of brooding clouds, the colour of sand and the ocean, the colour of the dress that you would regret wearing on that windy day.
