Definition: 	sunrise (colourful sky seen at dawn)
Source: 	qep'a' 23 [2016]

(qurgh, 8/18/2016):  {tlhom} and {chum} were new words created because one of the new Friends of Maltz [i.e. Lieven] specifically asked for a way to talk about the visual experience of sunrise and sunset. Those phrases were then added to the dictionary as the specific way Klingons talk about those experiences.
