Weekend Haiku & Limericks

Your challenge: write a haiku or limerick featuring one of the subjects discussed here in the past seven days: singing, mall, reclaiming, 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. It's the darkest cold time of the year.
    The apocalypse came. We're still here
    proclaiming the light
    and embracing the right
    to a holiday free of all fear.

  2. Have I mentioned lately that you're a genius?

  3. Seen almost anywhere
    Cruising the shore on long legs
    Herons of all sizes

  4. People came, singing,
    voices filled with hope and cheer.
    healing filled my heart.
