Sininen on taivas,
Siniset on silmänsä sen.
Siniset on järvet,
Sinisyyttä heijastaen.

Sounds like синий, which is "blue" in Russian.

It definately has eastern roots like all words meaning a colour.

As far as I can find, not all color words. Punainen is derived from Proto-Finnic-Ugric puna, 'color/hair'. Valkea/valkoinen is derived from Proto-Finnic-Ugric wëlketa, 'white/light'.
