Weekend Haiku & Limericks

Your challenge: write a haiku or limerick featuring one of the subjects discussed here in the past seven days: National Parks subway map, fracking, baby manatees, 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. Go visit a national park
    where nights are still quiet and dark.
    You can hear yourself think
    and your problems will shrink
    from inferno to merely a spark.

  2. Baby manatee
    And the cloud society.

  3. Our national parks
    are a national treasure
    we can't live without

  4. Anytime is good
    Walking through fields and forests
    Bring those good thoughts home
