But Really

A friend sent me the above photo knowing I love nature and all that is uplifting. The seemingly brave little ladybird inspired me immediately.


Despite my bravado
My no filters systems go
Keen for darkness and the oh my!
With Google searches
You wouldn’t believe

But really

I miss hugs
From warm arms
I miss shared cake
Then stone-cold coffee
Sharing “don’t tells”
Listening with intrigue
Walks in the park
Feeding pigeons on my arm

Yet really

A bold lost ladybird
Screaming to fly away
Escape from the fires
Of fields scorched black
Peach roses beckon me
Petals embrace…
I’m safe

“Ladybug, Ladybug, fly away home
Your house is on fire
And your children will burn
Except little Nan, who sits in a pan
Weaving gold laces as fast as she can!”
~ Medieval English rhyme
