Little Beetle

Following a little beetle
as it moved with purpose,
I wondered about
it’s red markings
and shiny black shell,
while it led me
around the driveway.

I thought,
“it is funny
that I am
being led by
this little bug”,
as it scurried
along it’s way.

And I questioned it,
what it though about that,
as it led me in circles.

It paused for a moment.

Seemed to consider my words.

Then, instead of an answer,
it disappeared
into the grass.

I felt all alone.
