Phrases for ephemerality

Posted by Weston on July 01, 2003

Whoops! I started a phrase discussion a few days ago, and then that whole board went into archive. Here is my original post plus a single reply to date, from bob:

I am curious to learn whether people here have some good phrases or images for ephemerality. To give an example, one that I know is a simile: "fading like dew on the grass of a summer's morn".

to which Bob added:

Like a pork chop in a boarding house.
