The Evening Party

The weather has been changing.
The evening with my friends has closed.
Our party was over and the guests have left.

An unexpected storm disrupted my plan.
We did not flee but the strain was evident.
I did not welcome the surprise.

A friend consoled me in my disappointment.
He said there would be other parties.
We will find a chance to celebrate again.

Tomorrow I will pick up the pieces.
I will plan for another event soon.
After I invite my friends, I will wait.

I will not worry about any problems.
I will remain flexible and spontaneous.
I will learn to embrace the unexpected.
