Throw me down

Throw me down
on soft warm earth
for I contain seed
I am seeking birth

shell that encases
is starting to crack
husk blown away
No going back

Throw me down
on soft warm earth
for I contain seed
I am seeking birth

I like the opening lines in this, Susannah, and how you've repeated the first stanza to end the poem. Lovely.

I love it, Susannah, and the repetition works well here.
