Beauty walks a razors edge - and all of this is impermanent.
Like fireworks in the night sky - the land blooms for such a brief moment. But, soon enough, these colours will fade again. Drowned by the rain . . . or wilted by the sun . . . or blown away by the breeze.
And yet, the fact that these wonders even exist - and that we ourselves can experience them at all - seems like more or a cause for hope rather than despair.
It means that there is a deeper essence pervading all of these physical expressions. Something timeless . . . in a world that is ever changing.
And so, even if beauty is tragic, and fragile, and so hard to hold on to sometimes
It is hopeful nonetheless.
