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.
