"Look down at your feet," said Mom

The words were meaningless to the toddling girl

Her eyes, open to the trees above

And squinting as light shot through to them between sparser branches

Her shoes blindly crushed their leaves

 

Mom pointed at the ground

And the girl turned her head understandingly

She bent down in silence and picked up an ugly brownish leaf

And let the ladybug on it crawl onto her hand
