Tortoise

Dianne_Bennett_tortoise_small-

You may not catch up with the hare-
But the hare will not see how beautiful
Everything in this life is.
The hare will not enjoy how fast it can run
How strong its legs are.
The hare will not know the earth under its feet
is full of plants and worms to keep it alive.
But you will- and it will make you
the most powerful tortoise on earth.

August-month of daily word inspirations

Last month, the lovely blog Scribe’s Canvas did  daily word inspiration challenge, and I adored her small pieces of poetry, much like a haiku. I loved reading them every day, they were very inspiring to me, I can’t imagine how inspiring they are for herself! And I decided that I will challenge myself to write a haiku-like poem every day to cherish a word in August. She did decide on the words beforehand, but I will decide on the word during the day.

Thank you, Acire, for this wonderful idea!
