I’ve always been a morning person, ergo sunrise holds great significance
for me. I am greeted each morning by it’s spreading light - a faint
glimmer at first, expanding into an instrument powerful enough to
illuminate the world. Despite it’s might, it grows gently from moment to
moment, progressing rapidly, though never in a hurry.
The sunrise is one of the few phenomena that has manifest its presence
daily since the beginning of earth-time. As such, it has become the
measure of stability, hope and dependability. Beyond this, it reveals
itself as a thing of beauty - not entirely gentle, but with traits which
mirror those of humanity: tranquility, sensuality, even anger, running
the gamut from peaceful to sublime.
The sunrise, then, is intricately woven into the fiber of mankind, diving
deeper than it’s routine concerns , reaching to the very soul of one’s being.
