Dawn of Creation

“Soon after, a dawn began like no other I have ever seen. It lit the waves, clouds, and sky with a rosy light so saturated and intense that it seemed to me a birth canal through which creation itself was replenished.” – from A Floating Life by Tad Crawford (Chapter 32)

As anyone familiar with Homer knows, the dawn is “rosy-fingered” and the sea “wine dark”. But why is the dawn rosy?
