Weekend Haiku & Limericks

Your challenge: write a haiku or limerick featuring one of the subjects discussed here in the past seven days: salmon, handouts and human nature, 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. Stay out of the river, my daughter.
    You know the fish ____ in the water.
    Those dirty fish spawn
    from  sunset till dawn
    and then die, as they very well oughter.

  2. what humans don't know 
    that fish and trees always do
    how to live a life

  3. I talk to the trees
    Shady grounds with gifts for all
    Natural treasures

  4. I reach out to you
    You take my gift and walk on
    What will you do next?
