100 Word Challenge for Grown Ups – Week#54 … Legacy

August 15, 2012

The effect or legacy of the Olympics will not last any more than the beautiful bloom on my hybrid rose or the froth of on my delicious cup of cappuccino. That is the absolute truth; nothing withstands the wrath of impermanence. For this reason we must enjoy and savour the experience and not attempt to hold it.

My only consolation is that; if I enrich the soil around the rose bush, prune its branches and protect it from the frost, it will bloom again.  I can, with effort, make another cappuccino.  But they will still be at the mercy of impermanence.

    Thought provoking … “nothing withstands the wrath of impermanence” and the importance of savouring everything. I enjoyed that, thank you
