ladybug makes the day (haibun)

The little girl skips home to show her mom the drawing she made at day camp. Turning the corner, she bumps into a boy on a skateboard and she falls to her knees. Crying and holding her scraped knee, her drawing falls into a puddle. The skater looks around awkwardly, leaning on an  elm tree.
