Ephemeral Beauty

It’s not always the big dramatic things that move us to tears by their splendour, but often the little, insignificant things that have a beauty all of their own, often passed by without even being noticed.  Just like this little cluster of fine seed-laden grass that is bowing under the weight of hundreds of tiny jewel-like droplets of rain.  Each tiny bubble sparkles as the light is refracted like stems in a glass of water.  What makes it even more poignant is the fact that just one more drop could disturb the whole lot, a passing animal brush past them or a breath of wind ruffle through these delicate stems and suddenly, the drops are gone and lost forever.  Such is the ephemeral nature of our fragile, living world.
