Haiku Friday

Your challenge: write a haiku featuring one of the subjects discussed here in the past seven days: Indian pipe, space junk/eco-guilt, 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.

Can you haiku?


  1. Life destroys its world
    chloropyhl makes oxygen
    and everything burns.

    Everything burns and
    life forms cope, change ,and adapt.
    We are not the first

    We are not the first
    nor will we be the last since
    change is the constant.

    Change is the constant

    some day the sun will flame out
    Life destroys its world.

  2. The crown of haiku is a sort of double riccochett off the eco rant.  Apologies if any are due.

  3. Oooh, a crown of haiku! Very exotic! Thanks, Roxie.

  4. Oooh, a crown of haiku! Very exotic! Thanks, Roxie.

  5. Response to Shakespeare's tongues in trees and sermons in stones:

    When still, beware of
    talking trees and preaching rocks.
    Heed their messages. 

  6. White Indian Pipe
    Unites two strangers one day
    Hiking in the woods.

  7. Ha! Thanks, Ranger Kim. If my life was a romantic comedy, I'd have a new boyfriend now!
