Sunrise Splendor

Sunrise amidst clouds

                        When clouds smile
               When warmth is felt within
                   Morning seems surreal.

Winter Sunrise

                         I was watching
   Your glowing love permeated around
             Trees bowed in reverence.





                  Peeping through trees
           I enlighten light that awakens
                      Your languid love.

This post was inspired from the thoughts I shared with my blogger friend arv, who is very passionate about sunrise and wonders why people share more images of sunset.  Both sunrise and sunset allure me equally and I have spoken about them in my earlier posts. You can click on the highlighted words to read those posts.

Thank you for reading this. Please share your valuable reflections, they are much appreciated.

  1. Beautiful post Balroop, both your pictures and poems. I love and am enchanted by both sunrise and sunset
    so agree with you and your friend. Maybe sunsets are the ones more people see as sunrise can be early.
    Thank you for the beauty.

    1. Yes Miriam, I hardly ever see the sunrise in summer, its only when days get shorter and sun too wakes up late do we bask in the glory of its gold, soaking our soul in the changing hues that it lends to its blue canvas…as if an artist is mentoring him backstage. Love and hugs dear friend.

  2. Thanks for the mention. What I love about your post is the spontaneity and the fact you have posted random pictures. I like the natural feel of unedited pictures.
    I agree both sunrise and sunset is beautiful but the whole atmosphere in morning is somehow more beautiful. You have something nice to look forward to. I’ll wait for what your readers have to say.

    Thanks for the share. You made me happy by following with your words. 😃

    1. An amateur photographer doesn’t know what is editing! I agree with you arv…the charm of the sun and surroundings cannot be described, it can only be felt and nature lovers do feel fascinated by the beauty of the sky when it changes colors within seconds. My morning walk is made more pleasant the day I choose to go early and I have many pictures in various moods of the sun. 🙂

      1. I’m an age when everyone is doing so much editing without being professional sometimes the result is a big contrast. Photo editing apps makes​ it easier. That’s why I loved your pictures. I’m happy to hear that you not only enjoy the walk but also capture moments. 😊

    1. Thanks Diana…I only wake up early out of compulsions and some of them are lovely! A morning walk when the sun is rising is most beautiful and heart-warming. 🙂

  3. Hmmm, not sure which I prefer; sunrise or sunset. I think I’m equally enamored with both. I’m less likely to see the actual sunrise than I am sundown which makes it more elusive. Your photos are lovely, Balroop! I love that the clouds smile.

    1. All such pictures are taken when I go quite early for my morning walk and whenever the sun is in special mood, it inspires…clouds are an added attraction 🙂

  4. Love these set of short poems, Balroop. They all fit into one big poem about sunrise nicely. Arv does share amazing sunrises and sunsets on his blog. You are right in saying that so many of us like to share such images. For me, I’m captivated by a good sunset not just because it is a great view, but it is something so powerful – it’s the world changing from dark to dawn, darkness to light, and there’s no stopping it. A sunrise can’t be stopped. Like you said earlier in the comments, I also am not much of a sunrise watcher as I like my sleep-ins and am not a morning person. But in winter sometimes I do wake up early enough to go to work and see a few of them 🙂

    1. Many thanks for liking the poetry that was inspired by the images I have shared. These thoughts hit you spontaneously when you look at the beauty of sun, especially when it is trying to emerge out of clouds.
      Nature can inspire, mesmerise and evoke beautiful thoughts…sunrise is the perfect example of all this Mabel. Look at the dawn breaking at the horizon, your heart would be warmed at the sight, watch the hues that the sky displays within moments of sunrise or sunset, soak in the first rays of the sun to feel special…these are some of the blessings that we take for granted! 🙂

  5. Balroop, such tranquility and peace in your post. Your first photo made my heart miss a beat in awe and revelation – it is surreal. Each day is a gift and the day itself is marked by the awesome rising and setting of the sun – beyond our control, the marker of our lives, as if ‘silently illuminating our lives’. A post filled with love, life and reflection – thank you for the calm that sweeps over me reading your words. hugs xxx

    1. Oops!! Annika I apologise for not responding to your lovely thoughts though all others have been answered!! I think I replied but just noticed it isn’t there! The first picture is indeed special as such clouds around sunrise are rarely seen and I was very excited when I saw them and also happened to go for my morning walk early…thrice a week I go so early. You feelings match mine…calmness and awe was around me too when I clicked those pictures. 🙂

      1. No problem, Balroop – that has happened to me as well!! 😀 Gave me a chance to pop over and read and enjoy the photos all over! Wishing you a calm joyful day. xxx

  6. Love your photo pictures of the Sunrise… I would just love to see the Sun full stop this week! 🙂 Thank you for sharing that ray of Sunshine Balroop amid your beautiful words.. Wishing you a very Peaceful and Bright New week 🙂 ❤

  7. Haha, you might tell arv that many of us just can’t make it up early enough to photograph sunrise. Though I have done, in the past. Lovely thoughts and photos, Balroop. Especially struck by the first 😉 xoxo

  8. Beautiful photographs and poetry alongside them… I have always felt that sunrises and sunsets echo the cycle of our days… after the darkness comes the light, so as to speak… and there is always renewal and hope as we face each new day… 🙂 Hugs across the miles, dear Balroop ❤

    1. True Aqui! Life is a combination of light and darkness…hope smiles at us every morning in the form of sunshine and that’s why sunrise is loved by all. Sunset too leaves a hope behind by promising to comeback 🙂 Thanks for standing by dear friend, much appreciated! Hugs are coming right back to you too.

    1. Thank you for visiting Emotional Shadows Mary, I appreciate your initiative. So happy to connect! I am delighted that you liked my review of Annika’s book. 🙂

  9. The pictures and the poems evoke such sublime thoughts, like the morning sunlight that brings the feeling of a new day, with new hopes and optimism. Had seen arv’s post on sunrise. Loved yours too.

  10. Wonderful pictures, Balroop. And, your poems have complemented the beauty of sunrise/sunset perfectly. I love to watch both and both the rise and setting of the sun make me speechless with their different hues and mesmeric beauty.
    Arv is particularly fond of sunrise, that is very much evident from his wonderful posts and pictures… 🙂

    1. Many thanks for taking out time today for reading both the poems and my latest post Mani. With so many activities going on around us at home and work, real reading takes the back seat. 🙂 This post was inspired from arv’s thought that sunrise is not noticed much…for obvious reasons. I am glad you liked the pictures and poems. Here we don’t have to go to a sunrise or sunset point to watch the beauty of sky. Just step out and watch. I clicked those pics during my morning walk…came home and penned those thoughts…poetry is so effortless!

  11. Beautiful post, Balroop! I love both, sunrise and sunset but the first has that bit more special magic when the world seems to hold its breath before the first rays of light hit the earth. 😊❤
