Ladybug: NPM #18

I’m always surprised when I find ladybugs crawling around on the beach. What brings them there? The shoreline just doesn’t seem like a place they would be! But then again, seeing ladybugs always fills me with wonder. These tiny perfect things are such fun to watch and to photograph.

Ladybug

When a poem lands on your shoulder

pay attention

watch the candy-apple red

fire engine bright

shiny cherry lollipop

crawl down your arm

Tiny black polka-dots

dance out

words

nature’s unexplained mysteries

compacted in this tiny jewel
