Today's NaPoWriMo prompt challenges us to write and Ode to life's simple pleasures. I'm using the irregular ode form. The artist in me enjoys freestyle. My poem focuses on my new favorite thing - the virtual House Party. I've attended a few with family and friends and enjoy connecting, even if it's virtual. House Party is an app, and like Zoom or other platforms, it allows you to connect with others and even play games together. I'm grateful for technology during these times. Let's all stay connected!
Squares filled with familiar faces; gathered on-line for a virtual party. Are you in the house? Welcome to the twenty-twenty version of socializing! Family and friends in virtual spaces laughing and connecting, sipping coffee or vino. Remember to lock the door of your virtual house or risk unwanted virtual party crashers! As for virtual party etiquette, do not rise from your chair while in the house lest your hello kitty pajama pants fill the screen, much to party-goers delight! Let's enjoy staying together, while apart.
