Weekend Haiku & Limericks

Your challenge: write a haiku or limerick featuring one of the subjects discussed here in the past seven days: boomers/mountain beavers, ocean dumping, agitating, Rémi Parmentier, 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.

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

    The mountains can sing
    Aplodontia rufa
    The voice of the night

  2. Rivers can teach us.
    Take time to hear their secrets. 
    They soothe, warn, and sing.  

  3. What to do with our nuclear waste?
    It's radically  fouling the place.
    "Dilute and disperse,"
    is a route to a hearse.
    Like these herrings - just have a taste.

  4. Having trouble getting this photo to post.  It's an open can of Russian Herrings with sharp, pointy teeth showing. 

  5. meander river
    while I float in my canoe
    take me anywhere

  6. Garbage in oceans
    Goes into our food supplies
    Gone not forgotten 

  7. The day swung open
    to a glare of peacefulness
    where ill shadows lurked
