Weekend Haiku & Limericks

Your challenge: write a haiku or limerick featuring one of the subjects discussed here in the past seven days: clouds and appreciation thereof, 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. Cold, hard bed with bugs,
    smoke in eyes, camping's drawbacks.
    But oh, oh the stars!

  2. One day I looked up
    Saw cirrus radiatus
    My heart flew skyward

  3. Look out the window!
    It's better than the movie
    on board the plane flight.

    (From Bob's comment on the Cloud Appreciation Society)

  4. beneath the big sky
    watch snow rain fog groom the grounds
    cool gifts from the clouds

  5. the best 3D without any glasses

  6. Perfect for so long.
    Mares' tails stream across the front,
    Say change is coming.
