Weekend Haiku & Limericks

Your challenge: write a haiku featuring one of the subjects mentioned here in the past seven days: snow, Girl Scouts, dog sled rides, tree wells, 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.

If your clever brain comes up with a haiku or limerick, kindly post in the comments below.


  1. A limerick's cheery and chatty,
    even if the poetics are ratty.
    But kids stuck in tree holes
    like frozen small snow moles
    just don't inspire me to merry witticism.  I do hate snow!

  2. And that post about tree holes just reminded you of one more reason to hate snow (and threw off your limerick to boot)!
