What do you See? May 14/2019

Hélène from Willow Poetry has set another What Do You See challenge.


Petal was the last of her kind, and it was imperative she survived.
Here she was safe, close to the sun and away from those who wished to study her, killing her in the process rather than allowing her to thrive.
Should Petal cease to exist, it was said the world would end within weeks.
Every day Nora climbed the 125 steps with her measured water.
It was her duty, her responsibility, her privilege to care for Petal.
Petal was the Giver of Life, but sometimes Nora wished she was rejuvinated before she began the climb.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Ah, an arduous journey indeed to climb up to Petal. Nora’s energy came from trust.
