Haiku Friday

Come back tomorrow to participate in our first PNW bloggers scavenger hunt.

But today your challenge is to write a haiku featuring one of the subjects discussed here in the past seven days: skunks, tomorrow's scavenger hunt, 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.

Tomorrow we scavenge; today we haiku!

    "NO! Leave it alone! Oh shit!"
    Midnight filled with skunk.

  3. Black and white at night
    Neighbor thinks it is my cat
    Luckily no spray

  4. May we learn from trees
    To understand life and death.
    Both are right and good.

    The fallen tree lives beyond
    the call of duty
