Weekend Haiku & Limericks

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

Post your haiku or limericks 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.

Post your haiku or limerick in the comments, below.

Haikus away!


  1. A weekend in Portland

    Drip, drip, grey, grey, grey,grey drizzle, mist,drip, drip, pour,
    drizzle, then Monday.

    If any one here feels curious,
    the sex life of moss is mysterious
    The stuff seems to breed 
    without rootlet or seed
    with persistence that's certain to weary us.

  2. “The frog does not drink up the pond in which he lives.”
    Once our pond was full.
    We slashed, we trashed, we warmed it.
    We drank up the pond.

  3. Yes!
    Terrific, Rosemary--thanks!

  4. Mosses and lichen
    bring thoughts of fairies and elves,
