Both positions can be seen like a dance. In the first one the dance is between kings. The White king must dance near the Black pawn, up to the moment the Black king is obliged to move. And when the Black king moves to E5, then he is out of the triangle to catch the A pawn.
The second position is a dance of queens. The queen dance all around, one blocking a rook, the other giving a check, up to the moment the E pawn has reached E4. I don't know how to add a chessboard to my comment, and show the solution.

First Puzzle, the Kings dance:
1.Kf2, hoping the opponent mistakes and goes out of the square, 1...,Kc6; 2.Kg2 (long opposition) 2...,Kd6; stays inside the square of the A pawn. 3.Kh3 (taunting the opponent) but Black doesn't fall for it 3...Kc6; 4.Kg4,Kd5; 5.Kg3 (triangulation),Kd6; 6.Kf4,Kd5; 7.Ke3 and now Black is in zugzwang, and will lose, hope I'm correct :-)
