a measure of love

I saw a ladybug walking on a sunflower
and wondered
if she saw me too
her antennae moved up and down
she spread her wings
and flew
to afterwards turn
and land on my cheek
maybe to her I was a flower
a flourishing adornment
in its most incandescent period
a beam of joy
a ray of light
a cradle of safety and warmth…
in her unconditioned measure of love
maybe I was
