THANK YOU, Tess, at Magpie Tales...


LADYBUG

As soon as the daylight
starts to bleed dry,
before red and blue
turn to purple
and die as grey,
I catch the rim of Venus,
reflect a gleam
that isn't mine to give.

Even as we hide
in the multitude of stars
and blades of grass,
we haggle our gifts again,

because memory says
there is a dawn,
and after seizing
the blessed boon,
I can awaken
as a Phoenix.
