Weekend Haiku & Limericks

Your challenge: write a haiku featuring one of the subjects discussed here in the past seven days: degrees of darkness, commuter dogs, or something from Monday's nature quote. Feel free to mine the comments, too (which is where Roxie's degrees of darkness comes in).

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.


  1. Rex, Fido, wake up.
    Time for our shawarma hunt.
    Next train's at 8:10.

  2. Now dogs are becoming commuters.
    Next you know, they’ll be pawing computers.
    Whether checking an app
    or taking a nap,
    Let’s hope they’re not train polluters.

  3. The dogs are getting so smart
    they’re riding the trains—ones like BART:
    good pickin’s downtown.
    They then turn around,
    ride home, full and happy of heart.

  4. Go, Rosemary, go!!!

  5. The unwary prey
    grazing at ease.  Just one bark
    and shwarma is mine!

  6. Ha! I'd thought of that too! Maybe they're good about not leaving deposits on the trains/subways or the authorities would be trying to get rid of them? None of the articles I read about commuter dogs mentioned this detail...

  7. Without the darkness
    we could not enjoy the light.
    Light reveals beauty.
