Haiku Friday

Your challenge: write a haiku featuring one of the subjects discussed here in the past seven days: reusable bags, daddy longlegs, 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.

Challenge your brain cells: post a haiku (or two)!


  1. This will make sense if you read the comments under the Daddy Longlegs post:

    Finding cows?
    No, it's not the legs that point somewhere.
    Lady longlegs know.

  2. Legs are long, daddy
    Creeping, crawling, up and down
    Scaring little boys

  3. Did I hear you say limerick Saturday?

    There once was a gal from Decatur
    Who save all her bags to use later
    One bag she admired
    Was duly retired
    When a bag packer squashed her tomater.


  4. Ooops---make that SAVED all her bags

  5. It's a little silly to flatter
    That droplet- his life couldn't be sadder.
    He lands in the cup-
    Grimly looks up-
    And says, "Great. Here goes one more bladder."

    (I think limerick saturday is here to stay, Pat.)

  6. Daddy Longlegs tap
    dancing through the musical
    - graceful Fred Astair

  7. Oh my gosh! You people are so dang clever! And FUNNY!
    And I see that you're right, Aubra--from now on I'll title this Haiku & Limerick Friday. (But you can post 'em on Saturday if you want to!)

  8. Ha! You're a pro now, Kim!

  9. Long legged dancer,
    Arachnid ballerina.
    Too thin for tutu.
