Ca urmare,
Uneori, mă trezesc visând.
Visând, mă trezesc uneori.
N-am noroc - îmi spun, surâzând,
Surâzând, îmi spun: n-am noroc.

Tainic e visul ivit fără rost,
pierdut printre alte atâtea ce au fost.
Parafrazez cu tot ceea ce a mai fost,
Căutând un sens evident sau un rost.

Ca urmare,
Uneori, mă trezesc meditând.
Meditând, mă trezesc uneori.
Ai noroc, îmi spun, deci, trăiesc.
Trăiesc, îmi spun; deci, am noroc!
"Ca o parafrază în versuri; reveria."

"As a result, Sometimes I wake up dreaming. Dreaming, I wake up sometimes. I'm not lucky - I said myself and I'm smiling, Smiling, I said I'm not lucky.  The hidden dream, pointless emerged lost among others, among many that they were. I paraphrase with everything that it was before, and I'm seeking for an obvious sense or meaning.  As a result, Sometimes I wake up meditating. Meditating, I wake up sometimes. You're lucky, I mean, so, I live. I live, I tell myself; So I'm lucky!"  "Reverie; as a paraphrase in lyrics." nb. In an imperfect english translation of the lyrics.

In memoriam: 
The unforgettable Freddie Mercury;

R.I.P. 5 September, 1946 - 24 November, 1991
"Delilah" is a song by British rock band Queen. Written and sung by Freddie Mercury, it was originally released on their fourteenth studio album Innuendo in 1991.
Delilah is a song Mercury penned for his favourite female tortoiseshell cat, which was called Delilah. It was one of the first completed tracks on the album. Brian May recorded his solo using a talk box. It was written in the key of G Major. Reportedly, Roger Taylor was not fond of the song and agreed to let it be included in the album only at Mercury's insistence." *click to read more info about Delilah on Wikipedia.

About  quotation: "Dubito, ergo cogito, ergo sum"...
Excerpts from Wikipedia : 
"Cogito ergo sum[a] is a Latin philosophical proposition by René Descartes usually translated into English as "I think, therefore I am". The phrase originally appeared in French as "je pense, donc je suis" in his Discourse on the Method, so as to reach a wider audience than Latin would have allowed. It appeared in Latin in his later Principles of Philosophy. As Descartes explained, "[W]e cannot doubt of our existence while we doubt … ." A fuller form, dubito, ergo cogito, ergo sum ("I doubt, therefore I think, therefore I am"),[b] aptly captures Descartes' intent."
Other forms
"The proposition is sometimes given as "dubito, ergo cogito, ergo sum". This fuller form was penned by the eloquent French literary critic, Antoine Léonard Thomas, in an award-winning 1765 essay in praise of Descartes, where it appeared as "Puisque je doute, je pense; puisque je pense, j'existe." In English, this is "Since I doubt, I think, since I think I exist"; with rearrangement and compaction, "I doubt, therefore I think, therefore I am", or in Latin, dubito, ergo cogito, ergo sum.
A further expansion, "dubito, ergo cogito, ergo sum—res cogitans" ("…—a thinking thing") extends the cogito with Descartes' statement in the subsequent Meditation, "Ego sum res cogitans, id est dubitans, affirmans, negans, pauca intelligens, multa ignorans, volens, nolens, imaginans etiam et sentiens …", or, in English, "I am a thinking (conscious) thing, that is, a being who doubts, affirms, denies, knows a few objects, and is ignorant of many …". This has been referred to as "the expanded cogito"."
Predecessors
Although the idea expressed in cogito ergo sum is widely attributed to Descartes, he was not the first to mention it. Plato spoke about the "knowledge of knowledge" (Greek νόησις νοήσεως nóesis noéseos) and Aristotle explains the idea in full length:
But if life itself is good and pleasant (...) and if one who sees is conscious that he sees, one who hears that he hears, one who walks that he walks and similarly for all the other human activities there is a faculty that is conscious of their exercise, so that whenever we perceive, we are conscious that we perceive, and whenever we think, we are conscious that we think, and to be conscious that we are perceiving or thinking is to be conscious that we exist... (Nicomachean Ethics, 1170a25 ff.)"

"Write it on your heart
that every day is the best day in the year.
He is rich who owns the day, and no one owns the day
who allows it to be invaded with fret and anxiety.
Finish every day and be done with it.
You have done what you could.
Some blunders and absurdities, no doubt crept in.
Forget them as soon as you can, tomorrow is a new day;
begin it well and serenely, with too high a spirit
to be cumbered with your old nonsense.
This new day is too dear,
with its hopes and invitations,
to waste a moment on the yesterdays.*"
*Source Internet: 
By Ralph Waldo Emerson in "Collected Poems and Translations".

Happiness starts with yourself.

Gladly shared with:

Be joyful, amazing and never give up to smile! 
Stunning things are all over! 

Stay positive, today, tomorrow and always! 

Rămâi pozitiv, astăzi, mâine și întotdeauna!
So, very thankful, each and every day, to be inspired...
All is well...

  6. Pisoiasul-dragalasul si Freddie Mercury mi-au distras atentia de la altele. :) Si unul si altul imi amintesc - in principal - de copilarie: in copilarie am avut primul pisoi si tot atunci ascultam Queen (de fapt pe atunci mai mult auzeam, tata asculta) :)
    Iti doresc sa petreci un weekend minunat! :)

    1. Why to be a sad cat? as usual, it sits at the window while he is watching so curious at birds, trees or whatever is passing by near that window...

      Ștergere
  12. I find the photos of cats at windows so challenging due to the contrast in light between indoors and outdoors. Yours have just the right amount of light and your cat has lighter coloured fur than mine. Kitties do love chewing on those spider plants, don't they? Your poetry selections reflect my stage in life. Enriched with arts, sights, senses and philosophies to all be ingested & experienced now... 1st time visitor to your blog... many thanks.

    1. Thank you kindly for the lovely thoughts expressed! indeed, there is a difference, a contrast in light between indoors and outdoors and the photography is a bit unusual as a vision, if I can say like this. A bit "contrejour" effect (having or involving the sun or other light source behind the subject).
      And it is nice what you have mentioned in comment above: "Enriched with arts, sights, senses and philosophies to all be ingested & experienced now..."
      Once again, thank you and have a very good week!

    1. Thank you; wonderful name, she must be a pretty lovely girl :) *-* It must be nice to have a cosy sleep, a nap on the bathroom floor!... I think that now when in november is pretty grey and cold (as an autumn season), all the old cats have a strange idea, habit of comfort in unusual places! Warm greetings and have so nice days, too!
