Blues For a New Age

As Homo sapiens continues its evolutionary transition to perception of an ever broader range of the light spectrum

New one-syllable words for the color blue:

prist
sweem
bloof

New two-syllable words for the color blue:

prinkle
lushie

And going forward, acceptable general substitutions for the word blue shall include “misunderstood” and/or “snowy owl.”
