Haiku Friday on Saturday

Due to a computer glitch, Haiku Friday arrives late this week.
Your challenge: write a haiku featuring one of the subjects discussed here in the past seven days: octopuses 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.

Kindly post your haiku in the comments.


  1. In Seattle cove
    an octopus's garden
    yields 50,000.

    Raindrops in the mist
    They were singing to the hills
    the song of the stars

  3. Fecundity plus -
    Fifty thousand children gone
    they never phone mom.

  4. Breathe stardust and wind,
    The breath of the universe,
    Whenever you sigh. 

  5. Stardust in sunbeam,
    Sparkling motes eddy and gleam.
    I Hoover up dreams.

  6. Thanks, haikuers--these are fabulous!
