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 versionof socializing!Family and friends in virtual spaceslaughing and connecting, sippingcoffee or vino.Remember to lock thedoorof your virtual house or riskunwanted 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.
