Or: The absence of permanence. Nothing lasts, everything dissolves to become something new. A cycle without beginning nor end.
Change is an integral part of our lives. Maybe not always welcome, but in each moment necessary. It is the substance of life. Everything around us and within us needs to rearrange constantly to go on, to grow, to survive.
Petals signal the disappearance of the old, they are a sign of change. The spring that has finally arrived and the fruits that will soon grow to nourish. But the blossom never lasts long, it is only a fleeting pleasure. Only just arrived and already, the white, pink and yellow is starting to disappear and you find yourself standing in a sea of petals swirling around you in the wind. But as they are carried away, new life is ready to form.
= unyielding, unable to be broken
The fragile body contrasted with unyielding rocks - or the other way around.
