Delicate and fragile

Though you may very well be

I imagine what you’ve endured

To gift the beauty that we see

Delicate and fragile

But only at first sight

Strength is often overlooked

To see beyond the obvious – our plight

Unaffected by our lack of awareness

Self-worth measured by your soul

Undisturbed by things like perception

Your wisdom makes you whole

    It looks like a fairy fixing her hair or adjusting her hat. So lovely, Belinda.

    Oh wow I love this B. It’s really so true! No one sees the strength! I believe that. I love how it looks smoky too or misty the flower! Wow! I love orchids!

      I am smiling and happy and thank you!!! Yes, strength is often not overly obvious, but it is incredible it is still within.

        That makes us like a dam that holds water. We can take a lot of pressure and when we get full sometimes we let down our water gates to ease things a bit. I think you call them happy tears or your eyes are leaking! Wink wink

        I got that from you. When you were taking a break, your sweet friends would ask about you and mention that and also grin, wink, yippee and yay! …I’m smiling at you…blessings on your day! I remember when you first said that to me and I loved it. Sometimes when I don’t know what to say I say that and smile thinking of you! Grin laugh Bahaha that’s your new one! I can hear your laugh when you say that!
