Tight fisted furl
Crushed within itself
Fragile fingers bent in
Parting ways within

Dewy kiss of dawn
Wakened and reborn
Sinews of new life
Spring spine tingling knife

Iridescent form
Stand erect and yawn
A fertility carved charm held high
It breathes a spore sigh of indignity

Avoid taste or touch
Fragile Fronds koru (Māori)
