tonight was the second time in as many days that
i've found myself walking back from the library far, far too late for my liking -
with feathery eyes, my mind floating on a string some ways behind me.
i'm so tired lately.
but, tonight i looked up and realized how lovely everything was.
flowering trees, soft ground, and some wistful scent in the air that i couldn't place but didn't care.
and while this whole post is one great cliché of spring and awakenings and revitalization,
that is exactly what happened.
