Ephemeral

Everyone and every instance is ephemeral, but when both are connected, we can see an eternity. Both may be ordinary, but when they meet each other, it is the moment the clock started to strike one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten, eleven and twelve, and the legend of Cinderella had become eternity.

Mushrooms keep popping up at Cerok Tokun, from every now and then, and at every here and there. The relay will never end.

These mushrooms are waiting for the right twelve midnight. But before that, me and you will not have any intense feeling about them. They just fade away either naturally or are smashed under our feet.

And now, it is ephemeral.

We are ephemeral.

For an old ant, it is just the thing it is looking for to have a good rest, after a long day walk. To the old ant, it is a beautiful little hut.

Mushrooms are delightful
Shitaki in your soup
Misted in fresh dew drops.. Running barefoot past the hourglass..
Scent of jasmine tumbles from above-softest island breeze..
graces a sweaty forehead-
Eight, nine, ten..we will rise again1
I enjoyed your shroom post- they are delightful! Have a happy Fourth!

You caught these mushrooms right before the stroke of midnight, the perfect Cinderella moment.

Those mushrooms in your 3rd photo look so unusual. Maybe its their short life that keeps me from ever seeing them before.

What an exciting cornucopia of mushrooms. Some are so exotic with different textures and colors, so beautiful.
