Weekend Haiku & Limericks

 Your challenge: write a haiku or limerick featuring one of the subjects discussed here in the past seven days: scallops, 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. "Oh, I adore scallops," she sighs.
    "I'm in love with their many blue eyes.
    They're nimble and frisky,
    cooked with butter and whiskey.
    And then they'll go straight to my thighs."

  2. From Lao-tzu to you
    A healthy respect shines through
    for teacher Nature

  3. hey little scallops
    traveling oceans far and wide
    tell us what you see

  4. Here's one from Rosemary (who's having difficulty posting):

    Sea Flyer

    A bivalve that's hard to corral up
    can zip through the sea at a gallop.
    A flap of two shells
    is how it propels
    its body to safety: the scallop!
