Weekend Haiku and Limericks

Your challenge: write a haiku or limerick featuring one of the subjects discussed here in the past seven days: sharp-shinned hawks, 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. Go where the food is.
    It's a feeding station, right?
    Survival is good.

  2. hunger has no dream
    of perfect worlds without death
    red in tooth and claw

  3. teeth and claws are bared
    diving towards the live meal
    i strike and then feast

  4. good obstacle course
    saves birds from hawks in plain sight
    branches stacked against trees
