Weekend Haiku & Limericks

Your challenge: write a haiku featuring one of the subjects discussed here in the past seven days: PeopleTowels, whales, Big Miracle, Hollywood and Greenpeace, 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.Wonder what you clever people will come up with this time!


  1. "That frood really knows
    where his towel is at. Wow!"
    From Hitch-Hiker's Guide.

    Here are whales trapped by some ice.
    And Greenpeace will do something nice.
    But the Russians, (who knew?)
    will also pull through
    in a Hollywood plot-twist device.

  2. Re: what Harry Emerson Fosdick said:

    Amen amen amen
    Amen amen amen
    Amen amen
    Amen amen
    Amen amen amen


    Amen Amen A
    Amen Amen Amen A
    Amen Amen A

    Wanted to haiku that beautiful whale story, but the mystery was too great :-)

  3. Amen, sister!

  4. Small among the stars,
    we look up to mystery.
    Accept the unknown.

    When whales must be saved,
    humans can work together.
    We rejoice for that.

  5. Sometimes I can see that someone left a comment, but for some reason it doesn't show up here on the blog. Here is a haiku from Matt Nenninger:
     Learn to take a walkQualifications - simpleWalk like Emerson

    And one from Jillmirwin:

    Should I recycleOr go cradle to cradle.Both have merits, non?

  6. Cold black nose is wet
    Shakes chilled body, rolls over
    Shows warm pink belly
