I am participating in National Poetry Writing Month, where the goal is to write one poem a day for 30 days. During the month of April, I will be using the writing prompts at ReadWritePoem.org and posting the results.
Day nine prompt (paradise)
Describe your version of paradise. Is it a physical location? a mental state? a religious concept? You can write todays poem as an ode, if you like. An ode to paradise itself or an ode to whatever takes you there: a plane, a faith-based practice, a lover, a dessert. Imagine the joy of paradise! The elation!
You may also turn and run in the opposite direction: where is hell for you? What tortuous small town or big box store or reality television program sends you spiraling into despair? Take us there with you. Show us around.

You would upload an image of your cat into a directory and then search through the directory for the cat you wanted to pet. When you clicked on it, a holographic image of the cat would sit in your lap, and you could pet it. The hologram felt just like a cat, but it was transparent. I think that the actual cat could also feel you petting it.
My kitty, Luke, was lying near me purring, which probably caused me to dream this. I've also dreamt a lot about technology recently. Not sure why, except that many of my relationships seem to incorporate it in some respect any more.
