Weekend Haiku & Limericks

Your challenge: write a haiku featuring one of the subjects discussed here in the past seven days: stuff, electronics, recycling, e-stewards, 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.


  1. Should I recycle
    Or go cradle to cradle.
    Both have merits, non?

  2. An eye for nature,
    a vast curiosity:
    how Emerson walked.
    Can products be created to last
    instead of failing, obsolescing so fast?
    Our money we've sunk
    into what's become junk.
    The problem--it makes me aghast.
    We're buried in way too much stuff.
    There's a point where we say, "That's enough!"
    though the latest devices
    still like to entice us.
    Word to self: Say it: "That's tough."
    (And reuse or recycle, not slough.)

  3. Whoa! A three-fer! These are so great--thanks, Rosemary!

  4. Wild nature stalking,
    Old shoes, humor, and an eye:
    Emerson walking.

    When you're wild nature stalking,
    There's no need for much talking
         Bring humor along,
         And maybe a song--
    Pretend that you're Emerson, walking.

  5.  Learn to take a walk
    Qualifications - simple
    Walk like Emerson
