Haiku Friday

Your challenge: write a haiku featuring one of the subjects discussed here in the past seven days: pillbugs, 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.

Haiku away!

  1. Chitonous cousin
    of lobsters, langustino,
    and shrimp.  Pill bug bisque?

    Sorry, no image, no sound, no season in this one:

    Evolution is
    the fifth day of creation.
    Let's just get along.

    Response to Mon quote re: creation myth:

    Brilliant metaphor.


    Wonder who the author was.


    She deserves a nod.

  5. Oh, non-traditional haiku are very welcome here! Thanks for this one-- inspired by Monday's nature quote from Brower.

  6. Wasn't it David Brower who came up with the metaphor?
