Weekend Haiku & Limericks


Your challenge: write a haiku or limerick featuring one of the subjects discussed here in the past seven days: gratitude, homelessness, 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. Flowers on the wall
    Patiently waiting for Spring
    Pictures come to life

  2. He draws the blanket
    close, tucks it in, seeking warmth,
    swears his bones are froze.

  3. The meal is a feast.
    He feels like an honored king,
    he feels gratitude.

  4. Eager for warm days,
    she welcomes spring and its hope
    for a place to live.

  5. Often we forget
    to give thanks for what we have,
    and share what we can.

  6. Gratitude without
    guilt. I don't deserve this joy,
    and thank you so much!
