Learned a new vocabulary today from Dailypost Weekly Challenge: Ephemeral: lasting for a very short time
I loved watching clouds. This is one of my favourite cloud picture, taken from inside a moving bus. Those who tried taking cloud pictures might know, within few seconds, the shape is no longer the same.
WHAT ARE WE
What are we but vibrant green leaves in the foliage of the tree of life,soon to be turned brown and fall before others take their place?
What are we but fast moving waves on the surface of the ocean of humanity, heading towards the shores of oblivion where they break up and die?
What are we but wandering clouds, chased across the sky of existence by the winds of necessity and consumed by the sun of voracious time?
Let us ponder for a while, my loving friends
And Let us try to give an answer to this: How sensible is it, to waste our ephemeral life by Hurting one another?
Wouldn’t it preferable be, more holy and more wise, Only love to harbor in our hearts and Nothing other?
