Weekend Haiku & Limericks

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

Post your haiku or limerick in the comments, below.    


  1. Libraries have more than just words.
    They have seed packs of flowers and gourds.
    You can check out instructions
    to grow giant pumpkins
    And return pumpkin seeds afterwards.

    Yeah, yeah, the rhymes are loose. I just had a birthday. I can do what I want!

  2. You check out the seeds
    Grown with sunlight and water
    The real book of life

  3. Such a little thing
    creates such wondrous magic.
    Seeds; God's miracles.

  4. Seeds planted to grow,
    mans planted in a woman.
    A creative God.

  5. Now a friend in need
    at the public library
    is a friend in seed.
