My Own Idea

Written for:  Poetics Asides #291, Write a party poem.

Never liked the word, party
Images of overcrowded room,
many unfamiliar faces,
people all talking
at the same time.

A few intimate friends,
plenty of laughter,
delicious dinner–in
or out–ample supply
of wine, and a sinful
dessert.

Would not be a party
of the first part,
yet would love to be
a party of the
second part.

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
