In youth, form a spear,
full grown, many hurls from you,
more sporting battles.

Warriors running,
through dense woods, bent one foot low ~
Flexible as you.

Into the clearing,
helicopters, carriers ~
Your seeds are falling.

Pinnate leaves ~ axis:
Streets, each off an avenue,
feeding the centre.

In youth, stands of spears,
black tipped, upright, numerous,
for harder battles.
