Weekend Haiku & Limericks

Your challenge: write a haiku or limerick featuring one of the subjects discussed here in the past seven days: pikas, 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. Make hay while the sun shines, you rats.
    Prepare for the hard winter that's
    coming like weasels
    to gnaw on your teazels
    and lay waste the stores in your flats.

  2. pikas and people
    gathering grass for later
    not sharing supplies

  3. Sun warms the rock hills,

    Wee pika munch lichen!

    Stash grass for winter.
