The Lady Bird, The blossom Tree, The washing and me

Today a Lady Bird landed on the washing. I haven’t seen a lady bird since last spring. I took it off the bed sheet and tried to take it to the blossom tree whose flowers have been sleeping since last spring but the Lady Bird flew away and the tree continued swaying in the wind. The Lady Bird came back, so again I tried to put it on the blossom tree, figuring two pretty things were meant to be together; belong together. The lady bird flew away for a second time. It made me realize that you can’t place things together where you think they look like they are meant to be, you just can’t, because they will always find their own place to be. I couldn’t change the destiny of that tiny Lady Bird or even the delicate petals on the tree from falling next winter and I definitely can’t change people, only myself. You can’t play god because no body will want to be your Adam or Eve. Let things be.
