Evanescent

I had to look this one up, as the use of this word has escaped me. Here is its definition according to Merriam-Webster;

The fragile, airy quality of things evanescent reflects the etymology of the word evanescentitself. It derives from a form of the Latin verb evanescere, which means “to evaporate” or “to vanish.”

Seems to me a rainbow or sunset would the perfect metaphor for this word. I chose the latter.
