Weekend Haiku & Limericks

Your challenge: write a haiku or limerick featuring one of the subjects discussed here in the past seven days: cleaning oily seabirds, 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. It will always spill
    Whatever oil is used for
    We need clean and safe

  2. Full winter's moon,
    Wolf's howl shimmers into wind.
    I brew hot pu-erh.

  3. I admit I had to look up pu-erh, William. Very appropriate for the Hokushi quote!

  4. The oiled birds do not
    appreciate the sudsing
    though it saves their lives.
