Sunrise in the Caribbean

4) The final part of the sunrise in the Caribbean is truly a spectacular sight.  While the sunrise might start as a mystical color sequence of deep purples, reds, and oranges, it ends in a quiet, warm yellow that soothes the waking world.  When this happens, its as if the sunrise wants to say, “Now that I have your attention, here is the day.”  The warm yellow rays seem to wash away the dramatic colors and highlight the sky .   This light emphasizes the sky and its extended horizons while keeping the earth cloaked in mystery until after the spectacle of dawn is over.  I feel energized every time I see this part of the sunrise because it reminds me of where my parents will be living, the warmth of the island, and the calm, slow pace of island life that is so different than life in NY.  The sunrise seems surreal because it is so quiet and the sky is clear, no smog to block out the light.  This sunrise also isn’t sharp, like the sunrises in Colorado.  Whenever I see a sunrise in Colorado, the sun seemed to attack my eyes with the brilliance of the sun, while in the Caribbean, the sun’s warm color seems to caress the eyes.
