Bright red and black against silken white petal,

caressed and caressing

drinking  kisses of rain, for both its the same

enjoying the symbiosis

of flower and insect

lightly touching, supporting.

Nestled in comfort,

a sight to see, as beauty like no other

Ladybug on Gardenia riding with glee,

enjoying the ambiance and coming to rest,

now time to move on –flying away,

waving goodbye with wings apart

until next time dear flower, at our next repast.
