Weekend Haiku & Limericks

Your challenge: write a haiku or limerick featuring one of the subjects discussed here in the past seven days: homelessness, a knock at the door, 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.


  1. Response to Rachel Carson quote:

    Sit. Pay attention.
    For a short time every day.
    Feel the strength it brings.

  2. put shields up shades on
    get through the day without thoughts
    easy sleep the reward

  3. a knock at the door
    you must decide yes or no
    either way is wrong
