Sunrise, there's nothing like getting up in the morning a looking out as the first rays shine upon the misty fields.

i like sunset more than sunrise because it feels like sunset is more romantic and i like the scenery...

and another thing... i don't like the sunrise because i see it seldom... because at times when the sun is rising... i'm either sleeping or taking a trip to school....

The 'meaning' some people give to either of them, is too vague and generalized. Could be applied to so many other things.


Why are you so caught up in all the technicalities? Can't one be permitted to be moved with emotion at the "illusions" of nature? That's what makes it so compelling in the first place. Vague or generalized? And ever since when was it a question of meaning being applied to many other things? What ever happened to metaphorical meaning?

I like sunrises, even though I rarely get up early enough to watch them. It's pleasing to see the darkness peel little by little with the staggering streaks of light that slit through the atmosphere. Eventually, the glowing aura changes the indigo dark sky to a pale grey... and short moment of dullness, abruptly ended with a rude burst of red and orange. The distant clouds beginning to illuminate with colors of the sun against the already vivid bluish tinge of a lighting sky... then, the emergence of the sun ~ great and blinding, turning everything gold with its god-like aura.

It's an orchestration of sorts that never ceases to amaze me, and as cliche as it may sound, the mark of a new day and a fresh way to start.


Sunsets are also amusing, but they don't seem to impress me as much as the break of dawn. So in the end, sunrise for me.

I say both. They're basically the same, but look at the hidden meaning(getting serious). Sunrise signifies birth, a new beginning, and a clean start. Sunsets signify, depearting, silent peace, an end , a close, and death. you cant control them even if you wanted to. with life, you just have to except everythin. The good, the bad, and the shitty.

Sunset because it ushers in the night.
I don't really like the sun it's too bright and hot. I prefer the night and cloudy days. Rain is the best it's and refreshing.
