Evanescent is an adjective meaning quickly fading or disappearing from sight, memory or existence.
“The apple blossoms’ shower of pearl, though blent with rosier hue, as beautiful as woman’s blush, as evanescent too. – Letitia Elizabeth Landon
Nature says thou shalt keep the air, skate, swim, walk, ride, run. When you have worn out your shoes, the strength of the sole leather has passed into the fibre of your body. I measure your health by the number of shoes and hats and clothes you have worn out. He is the richest man who pays the largest debt to his shoemaker.
~Ralph Waldo Emerson, 1851
‘Cause I know the river is deep
I found out that the currents are tricky
And I know that the river is wide
And oh, the currents are strong
And I could lose every dream
I dreamt that I could carry with me
Oh, but I will reach the other side
Please don’t let me have to wait too long
-Rich Mullins, The River
In the hush of dusk, one last bird whispers a lullaby, as the mottled sky loses its fire and slips into a velvety plum. A single tulip wraps itself in the folds of its own soft blanket. And night descends.
Wishing you all a peaceful Wednesday!
“I thought of you and how you love this beauty,
And walking up the long beach all alone
I heard the waves breaking in measured thunder
As you and I once heard their monotone.
Around me were the echoing dunes, beyond me
The cold and sparkling silver of the sea —
We two will pass through death and ages lengthen
Before you hear that sound again with me.”
― Sara Teasdale
