Weekend Haiku & Limericks

Your challenge: write a haiku featuring one of the subjects discussed here in the past seven days: rude awakenings, nights at sea, 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. Love to see what you might come up with!


  1. everything arrives
    knowing how to live its life
    excepting humans

    (Thinking of Monday's nature quote, even at the barest root, full knowledge)

  2. Leave my warm bed? Now?
    Duty calls and I answer,
    watching through the night.

  3. Warm Pacific night
    Dark sky meets the dark ocean
    Ship's wheel holds the course
