She stuck to her goal like a pitbull.



She saw it through well.

Not stopping short of her goal,

Her end stayed in sight.


And you?

Have you seen determination overcome steep obstacles?

Ktabutt: There is indeed something "pithy and hopeful" which characterizes determination. I appreciate you checking this out and commenting.

Could it be that because the Haiku is about "she" all of the comments are from you lovely Hubbers? The votes, comments, and feedback are all music to my ears.

maybe the "lovely Hubbers" are simply more appreciative to the beauties of life? Though I'm sure anyone could appreciate this Haiku regardless of gender

by "beauties" I'm referring to the beauty inherent in all forms of poetry

ImKarn23: Hard to find, but usually successful. Like you with a Hub you are determined to write!

I like this one. It has a solid feel to it when you say the syllables. They seem to reinforce the meaning - determination. Good Haiku.

phdast7: It may well be that poems are best when read aloud, making it easier for them to "speak" to you. ;o)
