Wonder of dawn


The shared reason of the day says, “See, the sun comes up in the east as the earth stands still.” Or maybe, “See, the earth turns on its axis as it swings around the sun.” Yet neither truly responds to the wonder of dawn… “Look! How this marvelous daybreak?” — Aphorism, 10 Aug 2019

Symbolist depiction of daybreak in a city park. Presented to show the inadequacy of words to fully capture wonder.
“Daybreak II” (1906) by Mikalojus Konstantinas Čiurlionis
