(OC *kʰɯds) is a pictogram (象形) of clouds flowing through the sky. In the oracle bone script, it was represented by three horizontal strokes, expressing the "feeling" of the sky. However, in order to avoid confusion with the number (OC *suːm, *suːms), the current (OC *kʰɯds) was changed to draw a small stroke from top to bottom. The glyph of (OC *kʰɯds, *qʰɯds) and (OC *kʰɯds, *kʰɯd) comes from the same ancient form.
