Weekend Haiku or Limerick

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

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.

Post your haiku or limerick in the comments, below.


  1. Be the stock market bullish or bearish,
    'tis folly if we do not cherish,
    our fragile home planet.
    because, really, damn it,
    the choice is to cherish, or perish.

  2. Bravo, Roxie! Standing ovation!

  3. Taken for granted,
    God's gift of the world to us.
    We mistreat it so.
