Wednesday Poetry Prompts: 188

Before I get into today's prompt, I just want to touch base on the results of the April PAD Challenge. I mentioned aiming to have the results ready around the beginning of August, but it's more likely going to be the beginning of September (now that we're half-way through August). With that in mind, let's get to this week's prompt.

For today's prompt, write a change of plans poem. The change of plans can be a good change or a horrible change. It can be prompted by the weather or a person (or group of people). Everyone's been there, right?

Here's my attempt:

"We missed the bus"

We missed the bus
but didn't cuss
or start to fuss,
and it's because

of our plan B
to hike, you see,
up to our knees
through the grassy

fields all the day
reserved for play
and making hay
the happy way.

Breathe life into your characters!

If you're like me, you know that what really makes a great story are the amazing characters that we love to love (and to hate). But it's not easy to create these life-like characters, and that's why the Bring Your Characters to Life Premium Kit was created. It bundles several character-building resources into one kit at a super discounted price. But the kit is a limited edition (with only 72 left), so the time to get it is now.
