      • I read the story about these two and at first the tortoise didn’t care for the hippo’s overtures of friendship but he warmed up to him and they became inseparable. I just love this story.

  12. Who says we can’t get along? Take a lesson from that Haiku and those two friends. That is a true symbol of world peace if ever there was one. My favorite Haiku of the whole challenge so far!
