Prompt 26: Resolve

Thanks to Christine of Quiet Paths for this week's prompt, resolve, and her poems and photo.

resolutely bright
wildflowers among scrub brush
destined to survive
Complicated fabric
I strive to decipher you
life is a puzzle.

And an example from Chiyo-ni
just for now
I spread the morning's snow
over the dust.
