Planting of A Seed.

Plop the crop
 Back inside of the ground.
 Thud sound.
 Cover it up
 With a slight dirt mound.
 Tap-tap.
 Water it.
 Watch it recede into a seed.
 It spits the water at the sky;
 Then, it's beaming with seedlight
 'Til it's night.
 Then, it jumps out of the ground
 landing back in the hand, right?
 Inducing vomiting,
 It quickly regrows its skin,
 Slips your grip,
 Attaches itself
 Back onto the stem.
 Then it withers
 Right back into
 A seed again.
