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.
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

Love the haiku. They’re both beautiful and inspiring. 😀
Thank you Vashti, so kind of you. Found them quite difficult to write so appreciate your positive words. 🙂
