A Photo a Week: Delicate

Delicate is the spider’s web,
at least to the naked eye –
appearances deceive, though,
just ask an unfortunate fly.


The sighting of a butterfly,
splashing colour with flight –
opening and closing wings
spreading childlike delight.

delicate in mire

In the midst of swampy mire,
this delicate flower dares bloom;
a snow white pop of hope
to break the slimy gloom.


Most miraculous of all,
the beginning and end ages,
where life becomes precious –
the most delicate of stages.

(Thank you to Nancy Merrill for this Photo a Week Challenge: delicate)

Permission to write, paint, and imagine are the gifts I gave myself when chronic illness hit - a fair exchange: being for doing. Relevance is an attitude. Humour essential.
