Flying Evanescent: Weekly Photo Challenge

Moments in time flying past

Moments soon disappearing, memories quickly fading.

Whilst those unknown on board, holidaying perhaps, their memories to keep

An evanescent moment quickly gone but in the mind it lingers on

As does the Concorde, an evanescent plane, here one minute then gone.

look its a plane

An evanescent childhood soon passes from existence. The joy of the huge jumbo above his cot will have no place inside his mind and if not for photographic evidence the plane would be an evanescent moment for others would it not.

About Irene Waters 19 Writer Memoirist

I began my working career as a reluctant potato peeler whilst waiting to commence my training as a student nurse. On completion I worked mainly in intensive care/coronary care; finishing my hospital career as clinical nurse educator in intensive care. A life changing period as a resort owner/manager on the island of Tanna in Vanuatu was followed by recovery time as a farmer at Bucca Wauka. Having discovered I was no farmer and vowing never again to own an animal bigger than myself I took on the Barrington General Store. Here we also ran a five star restaurant. Working the shop of a day 7am - 6pm followed by the restaurant until late was surprisingly more stressful than Tanna. On the sale we decided to retire and renovate our house with the help of a builder friend. Now believing we knew everything about building we set to constructing our own house. Just finished a coal mine decided to set up in our backyard. Definitely time to retire we moved to Queensland. I had been writing a manuscript for some time. In the desire to complete this I enrolled in a post grad certificate in creative Industries which I completed 2013. I followed this by doing a Master of Arts by research graduating in 2017. Now I live to write and write to live.

    Such a thoughtful interpretation of the challenge. A plane in the sky never looked so good, and I haven’t thought much about planes flying overhead as and when we see them each day. You’re right – people are flying over us, flying to discover new places, flying for love, or flying for adventure. One moment we are here, one moment we are elsewhere experiencing somewhere else. You never know…maybe the kid is very intelligent and will have a good memory of the plane in his room years later down the track. Kids can be very, very smart 😀

  4. You really stretched the interpretation of evanescent and yet you captured it perfectly. I love the baby reaching for the plane over his crib, and the image of the Concorde, perhaps a creation out of its time.
