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!)


  1. Survival achieved
    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!

  3. Ha! Not a haiku, but I love it anyway!

  4. Your novel comes out
    and you now wait for reviews.
    Did Bling like it? Whew!

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

  6. A three-fer! Well played, Philip!

    (This from the brain behind a sonnet-a-day If you haven't already discovered the poetry of Philip A Hofmann, you'll want to check it out.)

  7. Wascally Wabbits
    Multiplying like crazy
    For predator plates.

  8. hope bling loves it---may I have permission to put a link to one of your blogposts on one of mine? Have drafted it, but will wait to post until I hear from you. The turkey buzzard post---no haiku this week---travelling with only a few minutes at internet cafe---

  9. Oh, yes--I'd love it if you linked from Thanks Deborah!

    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.

  13. cottontail like a
    teenager in my driveway
    chasing cars and sex.

  14. And thank YOU----for returning the favor :-)

  15. Kidnapped by rabbits--
    Lorax bound & gagged. Outside
    the birds & wind sing.

  16. Yay, Wafford!
