New work

I’d like to be a cat

I love the sun on my face

It’s all I need to brighten my day

To make the problems leave

They don’t seem so big now

As I sit on the terrace leaning back

Just wishing for life to show me

What I should do next?

I shouldn’t care about the next problem

Just enjoy the moment

As the wind whistles in my ear

As I watch the busy birds

Hurriedly building their nests

The cat watching from under the table

Waiting for it’s moment

It must be nice to be a cat

Daydreaming all day long

Preying on innocent little things

Food prepared for you

Eat sleep repeat

A warm bed, a cuddle when needed

Space when you want

I’d like to be a cat

  1. This post is so relatable! Sometimes, all we need is a moment to ourselves, to just soak up the sunshine and forget about life’s problems. I love how the author captures the essence of a lazy day on the terrace, with the wind in their hair and the birds chirping in the background. The mention of the cat adds a touch of humor to the post, and I can’t help but envy their carefree life. Thank you, author, for reminding us to take a break and enjoy the little things in life.
