ephemera - word of the day by WOCADO

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.

 

Examples:

  • Oh yes, we can all bear it; and by so much we ephemera get back our lost significance, our sovereignty.” Robins, Elizabeth
