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. 


  1. Sporting coats of mail
    Iron toothed mollusk cruisers
    Map reading Chitons

  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.)
