Weekend Haiku & Limericks

Your challenge: write a haiku or limerick featuring one of the subjects discussed here in the past seven days: bumblebees, chickadees, roommates, 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.


  1. Weeds are like signposts
    Always willing to start again
    Greenest of the green

  2. Chickadee dee dee
    Mystery of chick and bee
    Buzz buzz buzz buzz buzz

  3. A bumblebee queen
    Can be a weed in the nest
    Of a chickadee mama

  4. Our downstairs neighbors were a fright,
    a party humming all day and night;
    and growing lots
    of honey pots--
    Mr Chickadee and I took flight!

  5. Dandelion seeds
    Tamed in an acrylic cube
    Almost as lovely
