his stomach knotted
as he recalled the pattern

his thoughts tightened
as he climbed the graveled path

he had trimmed his plans
to keep them simple and low-key

the ocean spray calmed him
as he walked the cliff’s edge

suddenly, he spread his arms
to soar

Writing with The Sunday Whirl this morning.
The whirl words are simple, trim, knots, gravel, low, spray,
path, edge, spread, tight, climb, and pattern.  I used all the
words in some form in my poem.
