Haiku Friday

Your challenge: write a haiku featuring one of the subjects discussed here in the past seven days: burying beetles, goshawks, or something from Monday's nature quote. Feel free to mine the comments, too.

Post your haiku in the comments, below. Remember the pattern of a haiku is:

First, 5 syllables,
the second line has seven.
And 5 for the last.


Post 'em when you've got 'em!

    Dive, squeeze, compress, then launch, up,
    again snatching flight.

  2. Smell death, find a mate.
    Any shrew or bird will do.
    Find love where you can.

  10. To slot a goshawk:
    Take muscle and grace, mix, tip,
    And pour it all through.
