Haiku Friday

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

Looking forward to your latest!


  1. The Swallowtail

    Floating on the breeze,
    the black and yellow wings beat,
    heading for the hills.

    Looking for a mate,
    then searching for tasty leaves
    for her many eggs.

  2. Eat, mate, eat. mate, die.
    Rockstars are more like insects
    than I ever knew

  3. Last excerpt posted
    of Kidnapping the Lorax
    What will happen now?

  4. Re: "We did not ask for this role . . ."

    Some of the world's great
    accomplishments are achieved
    by reluctant souls.

    Reader review say
    the novel is number one!
    Thank you very much!

  6. Butterfly's duty
    To taste leaves with her forelegs
    But never to eat
