I can't believe Tuesday's come and gone.

I am on the top floor of the library, sitting by a wide window,
through which I can look straight across Texas.
I came here to focus, but found myself staring out at the horizon.
The dark clouds are distracting my weary mind.

Today, a butterfly landed on my thumb and stuck there.
Truly, I could not frighten it away.
I suppose it mistook me for a flower---
it licked my fingers.
I didn't even know butterflies had tongues!

I hope you are all having excellent days.
