Weekend Haiku and Limericks

Your challenge: write a haiku or limerick featuring one of the subjects discussed here in the past seven days: Queen Anne's Lace, 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.

We're looking forward to seeing your haiku or limerick in the comments, below!


  1. Beauty blooms for free
    and vacant lots hold bouquets.
    Find joy where you can.

  2. Hollyhock dolls with

    Queen Anne’s lace tablecloth and

    acorn cap dishes.

  3. The sound that I made

    as I fell in the forest

    startled all the birds.


    The curse I uttered

    rising back up on my feet

    I hope no one but birds heard.


    Please forgive me Lord

    for such colorful language

    in your lovely woods.

  4. Between farmers rows
    Sometimes stretching miles and miles
    Queens Anne's Lace grows wild
