Fifty-five is grounded in her game,
Intuitively expert in her aim.
For years of focused, patient practice yield
The instinct that will one's technique sustain.
Yet expertise will suffocate if sealed.

For her, the truth is ever to be revealed.
In become, one must let go became.
Verities must never be too tame,
Enduring only in an unfenced field.
