What is the symbolic meaning of the passage, "Although the morning… vagueness of a dream," fromThe Pearl?

If the reader extends the symbolism to the entire novel, then the “mirage” is Kino’s hope after having found The Pearl of the World that he will be able to move his family to a higher socio-economic class, hoping for a beautiful wedding, clothes, guns, and an education for his boy.  However, as in the passage, “all sights were unreal” and Kino’s vision cannot be trusted to prove right.  For, instead of a better life, people learn of his fortune, and greedy men seek to take the pearl from Kino.  Thus, the “sharp clarities” are the reality that Kino has people trying to kill him for the pearl.  Realizing that he and his wife will have no peace, Kino throws the pearl back into the sea, and all his aspirations of a better life acquire “the vagueness of a dream.”
