Write two haiku about: the tortoise and the hare.
References to the fable welcome, as are haiku that ignore it completely. Me? I went for the one of each approach.
Inspired by my experience seeding spinach in the garden today. It was a long row, and I know I could have done it much more quickly than I did. But I took my time and enjoyed not having to rush through it.
And in the end, the row was seeded all the same.
One fast, one slow, each
unaware the finish line
hosts an eager chef.

On Blackberry Lane
a hare awaits today's mail;
it could be a while.
