Weekend Haiku & Limericks

Your challenge: write a haiku featuring one of the subjects discussed here in the past seven days: sea cucumbers, the Lorax and SUVs, 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.

Please post your haiku or limerick in the comments, below.


  1. The sea cucumber
    is such a gutless wonder.
    Life at any price.

  2. Love to Rachel C.
    "wonder and humility"
    the grand stuff of life

  3. Dawn lights still-bare tree
    Wind chases silver-edged clouds
    Contemplate the Earth

  4. Wish I could expel
    and then regrow organs too,
    cool as a sea cuke

  5. Marching tiny feet

    A sea cucumber parade

    On abyssmal plains

  6. Oh, you clever, clever people!
