Settled (NaPoWriMo Day 28)

Standard

Sit on the porch and wave at neighbors.
Eat ginger to ease your tummy ache.
Tell the truth and you’ll sleep well at night.
Travel West, find your land, and build on it.
Listen closely to all sides before making the call.
Explode at the start, then pace yourself for the race.
Deepen your breath, stretch, and clear your mind.

Poetic Asides’s Day 28 prompt was to write a “settled” poem. I was struck with the number of uses of the word “settled.”

Incidentally, I was trying to get this full justified, but WordPress doesn’t like to cooperate on formatting sometimes, so I uploaded a pdf in case you want to see the formatting I intended:  Settled.
