Haiku Friday

Your challenge: write a haiku featuring one of the subjects discussed here in the past seven days: rabbits, Kidnapping the Lorax, 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 at the end.

Please post them in the comments (I love Fridays!)

    by means of fecundity.
    Life control by birth.

  2. The Secretary of the Interior,
    So uptight and oh so superior,
    Till three tree-hugger guys
    tried to open her eyes
    And if you think I'm going to spoil the ending, you're nuts!

  5. Kidnapped by rabbits!
    Lorax bound & gagged curses
    as birds & winds sing.

  7. Wascally Wabbits
    Multiplying like crazy
    For predator plates.

    language of the wild
    signs danger to the watchful
    sings songs of its heart

  11. Bunny hops to deck
    nose to nose with turtle: HI!
    Glass can't stop their gaze.

  12. Here's one from my student Wafford:
    Tree intrigue delights,
    animals sing or mouth thought,
    home turtles pattern.
