39-challenge1

Just recently I watched a wonderful documentary called First Position about six young dancers from around the world, as they prepare for the Youth America Grand Prix, one of the most prestigious ballet competitions in the world. The Haiku challenge vie and reach, seemed to be a perfect match for the hardworking, dedicated ballerinas who strive so hard for much coveted perfection.

Ballerinas reach

Giddy  balletic new heights

Vie for perfection

Ballerinas reach giddy balletic new heights

Giddy Balletic new heights vie for perfection

The second haiku incorporating nature came to me quicker than the first:

Reach high for the stars

Whatever you do try hard

Vie for the moon too

Reach high for the stars whatever you do try hard

Whatever you do try hard vie for the moon too
