When I considered temporary, the things that first came to my mind were a fleeting rainbow, a flower, a film of snow down the street, and so on. But in reality, everything in the world is temporary.

We might store the moments in the pictures we click, and the memories we hold close to our hearts, but the essence of life is its transiency.

Through my window
Through my window: Snow covering the streets
With rain comes the rainbow
a flower
Spring brings tulips

Robert Frost in his poem “Nothing Gold can Stay” has beautifully illustrated the temporary nature of things.

Nothing Gold Can Stay

Nature’s first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf’s a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.
― Robert Frost
