Weekend Haiku & Limericks

Your challenge: write a haiku or limerick featuring one of the subjects discussed here in the past seven days: spotted owls, 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. It's not practicalto live out our existenceas nature made us,

    Some would be too coldand others sunburn easily:
    No happy medium.

    Squidging toes in sandbare feet are comfortable
    the joy of summer

  2. The lineation disappears.  How do I post here in haiku form?

  3.  What do you copy and paste from ?

  4. The sly spotted owl
    scanning for an easy prey.
     Where is the duckling?

  5. A wee little owl
    vulnerable prey for many
    Let's hope it survives


  6. in places we don't go
    owls and creatures still hide out
    find the time to change

  7. find me a place, please,
    where I'll be loved and cared for,
    by nature's bounty

  8. Whatever you do
    Don't take birds of prey or their
    Feathers home with you.

  9. A conundrum:
    When is a barred owl spotted?When Pat's on the prowl.
