Ephemera don’t stick around for very long. You might enjoy such ephemera as sunsets and rainbows, things appearing only briefly, and so enjoyed all the more.
The Latin ephemera was a word for a fever that doesn’t last long. Today, ephemera is the plural form of ephemeron, which means something impermanent, lasting only a short time.
- Oh yes, we can all bear it; and by so much we ephemera get back our lost significance, our sovereignty.” Robins, Elizabeth
