Weekend Haiku & Limericks

Your challenge: write a haiku or limerick featuring one of the subjects discussed here in the past seven days: fish, Monterrey Aquarium, limits or something from Monday's nature quote. Feel free to mine the comments, too.

Post your haiku or limerick in the comments, below. Remember the pattern of a haiku is:

First, 5 syllables,
the second line has seven.
And 5 at the end.

A limerick is a wee bit more complicated. Here's one description.

Have at it!

  1. My father caught fish
    by the thousands here.  Why are
    there none here today?

  3. The day one must choose
    Between one's books or nature
    Is a day to grieve.

  4. The thought of a book
    Being devoured in compost
    Strikes pain to my heart

  5. Yes! (Although I can think of a few books that I thought were already a steaming pile of compost...)

  6. Fish fly through water,
    such grace as they glide on by.
    A water ballet.
