Pick-me-ups!

Freshly picked wishes
a bundle of encouragement –
immunity boost!

(For Cee’s Flower of the Day challenge.)

Delicately Opening

Closed signs turn cautiously
trepidation persists –
are openings wise at this time?

Spring ignores man’s conflicts
delicately asserts her voice
delivers a message of renewal


A reminder to all hearts to set aside worry
open anew to the wonders around us –
all else will fall in place in its own time.

(For A Photo A Week Challenge: opening; and Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: delicate colours.)
