Haiku Challenge No. 39 Vie and Reach



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

About Marje @ Kyrosmagica

Hi. Welcome to my blog, Kyrosmagica. A blog about magic, books, writing, laughter, and much more! I'm a debut writer in the process of finishing my first YA fantasy novel, set in Cambridge. I write book reviews on Net Galley and Goodreads. I have a penchant for travel and have relatives in far flung places, Australia, Malaysia, and Singapore, (my birthplace.) I grew up in in Bonnie Scotland, in Edinburgh, and now live in Cambridge. I love sunny, hot places, particularly Rome, Venice, Portugal, Barcelona, and I forgot to mention the sun drenched beaches of the Caribbean, how could I? I am lucky to have been blessed with two lovely daughters and a husband who I fondly refer to in this blog as my black sheep. Family joke! With my passion for travel, culture, beautiful beaches, good food, books, theatre, writing, and humour, I hope to keep you entertained. I'm loving every minute of this creative journey, please join me.
