Weekend Haiku & Limericks


Your challenge: write a haiku or limerick featuring one of the subjects discussed here in the past seven days: coyotes, 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. Con-man and scammer
    coyote thrives on the edge
    laughing as he flees.

  2. What a legacy
    To leave one's rotting body
    For a greener earth :-)

    Noble legacy,
    To leave one's rotting body
    For a greener earth :-)

  6. spreading manure
    makes no difference to me

  7. Coyotes' cunning
    stands between sure starvation
    or continuance

  8. screechy cackling noise
    from coyotes on the hill
    alarm and frighten
