Weekend Haiku & Limericks

Your challenge: write a haiku or limerick featuring one of the subjects discussed here in the past seven days: climate change and its denial, murky brain pans 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. You folks are so clever! I love to see what you come up with each week!


  1. Climate deniers:
    Open the Just Science app
    Your minds will open

  2. Re: "prosperous development"

    When she said, "You can't
    have your cake and eat it too,"
    did she mean the earth?


  3. Please explain to your sons and your daughter
    that the world is going to grow hotter.
    With your telephone app
    make it very clear that
    they had better start saving fresh water.

  4. makes no sense to some
    some cool while it gets hotter
    call it global change

  5. measure your carbon
    think before you step ahead
    do the turtle walk
