Weekend Haiku & Limericks

Your challenge: write a haiku or limerick featuring one of the subjects discussed here in the past seven days: rivers, EPA website, 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.

Please post your haiku or limerick in the comments, below.                


  1. Great things happen when men and mountains meet.
    Water gets polluted, resources are deplete
    entire species wiped out, forests all laid low.
    We strive to be the first to leave our footprints in the snow.

  2. Polluted water
    It's all around Puget Sound
    Do the orcas know?

  3. Carried by comets
    Water lives like you and me
    Sleeps deep underground
