    This is a happy tanka–one insect I love.

    Ha–charming. There are the old native lady bugs and now many that have come from China–there are a little lighter orange in color–and they definitely do not go away for the fans! Thanks, Lynn. k.

    I still love watching a ladybug crawl on my hand…a child’s face glows and mine lights up too:) this is something I hope I never grow out of …beautifully penned, Lynn!
