For what's in a name,
That Shakespeare untamed,
A lyric gained fame,
But when it became,
A different ball game,
For one who's insane.

taught WinWin cooperative peace
by co-investing in ego/ecotherapeutic justice.

‘til from hour glass more time we’d lend
But now I wander, what might have happened?
According to you, it seems late for your soul to mend

Style speaks
Charm hurls voice
Cinqku profound
Understanding transcends

Heed now
Feel nature spark
Movement in mundane glimpse

Smile sweet
In plain sight
Love light aglow
Live with sun and shadow

Curvy lines
Adrenaline pleasure

Live wire
Feisty field trip
Quantum soup reflection

A maze
In a daze
Wander in craze
Grandeur and splendour...
