The pink of dawn ...

It's pretty early. By my usual standards. Today is an aberration for work reasons, and I've been up since 5 am, seated by the window for the last 2 hours.

It's weird, but I never quite saw dawn the way I see it this morning. The sky was pitch black at 5 am and started to *lighten* up at about 6. Gradually more colors filled the horizon, many many more shades than I'd known of or seen in a long time. And now as of 6.53 am, the sky stands at a certain hue of peach/ pink as the sun bides its time coming up.

It's all simply gorgeous, for lack of non-trite adjectives.

It's true. You can't appreciate dawn, unless you've been watching the horizon since the time darkness prevailed.

Welcome to my world, woman! I know exactly what you mean by the glory of dawn, considering the many days I've spent coming in early at work, and those morning rides in Bangalore to class/work :-) That's probably one of the things that make me happiest (not the work, plis!!)

now that you know what the colors of dawn look like, conjure them up in your dreams- esp the dream between 7 am and 8 am :P
