Critique of Artwork

Butterfly wings or petals in gentle wind; first warm raindrops caressing your face on early spring day; pleasantly subtle taste or color or sound of music; a glance from a person of soft fragile beauty; a lover’s touch, difficult situation handled tactfully or appreciation of life that can so easily be torn and damaged – how can I express “Delicate”?
