    that will take forever for the snail to reach the top should it survive the elements. Love the metaphor.


  2. ah yes….little snail on a lifetime path…. there we all are with it, too.

    Inch by inch . . . life’s a cinch.
    Yard by yard . . . life is hard.

    Lovely haiku.

    This reminds me of one of my favorite Quotes … “With perseverance, even the snail made it to the Ark!” 😀 Thank you for the timely reminder.

    I had missed this post! This is a great reminder for me as patience is not one of my virtues, but working on releasing this . When I get impatient with goals, I will remember the snail.
