Haiku Friday

Your challenge: write a haiku featuring one of the subjects discussed here in the past seven days: shout-out to the U.K., alders or park visitor questions, Rachel Carson 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.

Have at it, and post 'em in the comments!


  1. Choppers against bugs!
    What would Rachel Carson say,
    Wilmington Island?

  2. In response to "What time does your 3:00 talk start?":

    Sometimes I wanted 
    to say "One" instead of "three"
    to vex the tourists.

  3. true confession
    I defend neanderthals
    big-brained, vanished ones 

  4. Tourists ask questions
    But don't think before speaking:
    Interpreter's fun!

  5. Friends across the Pond
    Savvy readers are they not?
    Soon there will be more!

  6. Aw Jill, aren't you a sweetheart!

    If you haven't yet discovered Jill, who's livin' la vida local and recently  stopped a forest fire about to ignite (!), check out her blog at

  7. tucked inside
    tiny catkin seeds
    dance the wind

  8. Welcome back, Yousei! 

    Readers here will find classier haiku than the ones I come up with--and poems, pikus, senryu and other interesting forms--at

  9. Control nature? Why?
    It does what comes natural,
    the way God meant it.
