The Ladybug

Today I watched a ladybug crawl along the curtain in my room.
A speckle of red upon white.

Watching her crawl with such determination..
Like she knew where she wanted to go..
I felt a sense of calm wash over me.

I wonder where she's headed?

She moved so fast I lost sight of her.
But as quickly as she left I see her right in front of me.
I see a tiny flicker of wing as it folds back under her shell.

Her small body hides her wings perfectly.
You would never think they were there.

She doesn't use them often.
Only when she really needs to.

If only I were a ladybug.
