Weekend Haiku & Limericks

Your challenge: write a haiku or limerick featuring one of the subjects discussed here in the past seven days: frogs, the kidnapped Lorax, 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.

Stretch your brain and post your haiku or limerick in the comments, below.


  1. The Lorax (who speaks for the trees)
    was co-opted to sell S U Vs
    Advertisers are nuts
    no if, ands, or buts.
    Invest in a hybrid now.  Please.

  2. hollywood eagles
    call the sound of red-tailed hawks
    and frogs sing one song

  3. Many a cool night
    Hollywood frogs sang to me
    as I camped lakeside

  4. Oooh, you people are so clever! I love the weekend haiku and limericks!

    Frogs raising voices
    Serenading the ladies
    Music of springtime

    Speaking of frogs, we should remember the most famous haiku of all by Matsuo Basho:

    Furu ike ya
    kawazu tobi komu
    mizu no oto

    The old pond
    a frog jumps in
    the sound of water

  6. Big frogs little frogs
    Every where croak croak peep peep
    Say hello froggy

  7. Dear "Hollywood' frog,
    I have known little of your fame,
    but I adore you

    outside my window
    jazzy night music comforts
    I listen to you
