There Is A Party Going On Next Door

Updated on August 12, 2017

And I Am Not Invited

You can hear the fun

It was if the party was right here

The laughs followed by more laughs

A quick change of voices

Each with their own pitch

Then a few loud yells

Not a cry for help

Just a lot of people having a great time

I have gone to my fair share of parties over the years

Some have been good and many not that fun

This is one party that seemed to have it all

I became more and more intrigued

The mystery sounds echoed for hours

Even after the sky turned pitch black

The happy times never stopped

My own day turned out to be very satisfying

Even though I had to work

I couldn't wait to be home

So I could crash

Then what I heard what I thought was a fantastic bash

After nine it turned to quiet sounds

I could smell the strong scent of wood burning

From where I sat I couldn't see the fire

It was such a pleasant smell

This was one party I enjoyed from afar

I wish more people could respect life this way

Leaving all the sadness and hatred behind

I realized something real special

I loved this party even more

Because I got to experience it from my couch

I popped some popcorn and typed away

Doing all the things I love

Experiencing life in many ways

If life was a color what color it would be ?

I think life has to be many vibrant colors that compliment each other perfectly

I am happy to feel the excitement from a distance

There is no mess to clean up

No leftovers to make room for in the fridge

As I sit here and marvel at this special time

Charlotte our cat sitting on the kitchen chair comfortably

As if it was her chair forever

It was only yesterday that chair use to be mine

      Dream, the message is clear: we don't have to be invited to the party, but we can invite ourselves to the joy and excitement, and we get to count our blessings meanwhile. Good read!

      Wonderful poem of an enlightening experience. Full of mystery in its own sense, yet at the same time comforting to the soul. Happiness surrounds spawning happiness. Thanks for sharing . . .

      Gypsy Rose Lee We cut down the expenses too. Each person can eat when they are hungry and plenty to snack on later. Bringing the best out and leaving the rest out. I love the way Sid gives up his spot so you can relax. Thank you so much for making today a real swell time.

      It is always pleasant to go to a party just to enjoy and have none of the worries of clearing up. My Sid always makes sure to take the most comfortable chair. Being an intelligent cat once I finish working on my PC he knows he can get on my chair and sleep there all night because I won't need it until I start working the next morning.

      I like the idea of enjoying a party where you don't have to do any of the clearing up! You're right; noises of people enjoying the world cheer us up.

      Shame the cat pinched your chair!

      Great poem.
