Weekend Haiku & Limericks

Your challenge: write a haiku or limerick featuring one of the subjects discussed here in the past seven days: ringing phones, human nature, 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. May God bless your heart and your purse.
    You have brought out the better from worse.
    You've the mercy to listen,
    and cause tears to glisten,
    and lighten some poor fellow's curse.

    There's so much that's wicked around us
    and scammers who try to confound us.
    But your tender brave heart
    helps a miracle start.
    Your rewards should be the profoundest.

  2. those few help too much
    because most can't share enough
    the burden heavy

  3. One falling raindrop
    The sun turning to the woods
    Invigorates me
