Weekend Haiku & Limericks


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

  2. Yay, Bob!


    (And he's not kidding about the iron-tooth part--chitons are said to have "teeth of iron" because their radulas--rasping, file-like tongues--contain magnetite, an oxide of iron.)
