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.
