GümüşSelvi - (gümüş servi) - [گوموشسلوی - Ottoman Turkish]
Gümüş · Selvi
Silver · Cypress
(n.) The reflecting Path of the Moon on the surface of Water.
Turkic people wax poetic when it comes to this much beloved Celestial Body of theirs.
The literal translation might sound weird at first, but it seems that it really just is what people see in it. The 'Silver' comes from te colour of the moon when it hits the water... and the shape of the reflection resembles a 'Cypress' tree.
Do you agree with this name or is it something else you see in this image of the so called 'Gümüşselvi'?
Or maybe in your culture, or your language, there is a name for that, too? -I would really love to know...
So, now I leave you alone with the full Ay Dede & wish you a beautiful Evening with him in the Sky.
