By the Fire


While sitting by the warming fire
My cat purrs while on my lap
My mind rewinds through my past

A minute but a relevant speck on a map
Blurred wavy lines between this and that
Not to relive, rethink, or outlast

Some roads I’ve traveled
Have become unraveled, but
That’s the life I know, live and love

My ode is to the celebration
On reflecting upon my revelation
Knowing life as a joy and not a foolish toy

While sitting by the warming fire
My cat purrs while on my lap
My mind rewinds through my past

    Beautiful gif, I love a coal fire, especially when someone else has done all the work!

      I love a beautiful fire. We have a small fireplace and get a lot of use out of it in the colder months.

    😊 How did you include an animated graphic? 😆

      I use google and search for animated graphics or gif files. I copy the url and add it as media. It’s a bit tricky but not difficult. Same thing with adding a video via YouTube. I had to work with it a couple times.

        Thanks for that! Maybe I will test it out one of these days! 🙂
