As Writer becomes manuscript 
So too Traveller becomes his journey—

Travel and Journal written in the present tense.

As Sculptor becomes clay
So too Chef becomes cuisine

Sustenance beyond recipe or menu.

While Musician disintegrates 
Small winged dots♪♫flyingeverywhere♪♫♪♫

Natural as rain.

And Coryphée eclipses choreography
Inspires us to greater leaps

Of laughter and courage

Airborne, we too become poetry
In this Holy grammar of Verb:

Opus of our own Lives.
