Haiku Monday: Don't Mess With Mother Nature!



Many of our Haiku writers are also brave activists on their blog sites .
They particularly are vocal on the horrors and risks of GMO's and FrankenFoods.
As a salute to these  mighty warriors
This week's Haiku  subject is:
Don't Mess With Mother Nature
Haikus are to be posted by midnight EST February 13, 2012
The usual requirements of the 5-7-5 format with the use of  a 
cutting word  and a reference to nature required.
You may post as many haiku as you wish, but only two per contestant will be judged.

A caution about visuals:
I am squeamish about horrid visuals.
The image above is an example of what is too  much.
There will be nightmares.
If you post visuals and they are more nauseating that the FrankenFrog above
please! post a warning so I will know not to look.
This means your Haiku should make it's point without the visual .

Webbing between toes?
How many feet did you count?
Monsanto! Cha-Ching!


Happy Weekend to All

Oops. Forgot the haiku!

Introduced Species

Giggling Carnivores.

Ate everything but.

Good afternoon Fishy,

Again congratulations on your win.

The should be a good very topic.

Drugs in the water.
Mother scorns Shenandoah
asexual fish .

I have a low squick tolerance as well so I'll try to be decorous.

And it couldn't have been more than, what, 2.5 seconds between the time you announced the haiku and Troll posted his?

Show off.

Oh, and now here comes Karl!

(These two need to get together and form a corporation.)

I'll be up . . . later.

I don't do visuals often, but will have a go at some haiku!


MOTHER NATURE'S MARCH OF TIME:

Turkey neck, crow's feet,
chicken wing arms, spider veins.
Nature's cruel tricks.


MOM NATURE'S WINDY FURY:

Watch from the porch and
play chicken with tornado.
Okie style roulette.

Great beginings!
If any of you readers have not followed the links to Troll, Karl and Serendipity there is much to be learned on their chosen subjects. I love,love, love their choice to share knowledge!

Unfortunately, I have first hand knowledge of Pam's first offering :-(

Just now getting to the topic, and it's great. I'll try to get something up by the deadline, but if not, I know I will enjoy all the others.

Way to go on the win, Fishy!!

Hey Fishy, I'll keep that in mind. Excellent topic. I'm still getting the hang of this haiku stuff: I tend to be a little gritty in the writing, but I am squeamish about images. And your point is well taken: let the haiku do the illustrating!

Boxer said...

Love the topic and I'm equally squemish, so mine will be safe.

Beautiful planet
Earth knows how to take care of
herself. Let her live.

what's happened to the
neighborhood? It used to be
so clean and quiet.

it should be a love
affair with yourself, not sad.
who needs bigger boobs??

I'll be up at one minute after midnight with pleasant visuals.

Here is my second entry. I had better quit here or I'll spend all day on a rant.

Moral Dilemma:

Aliens invade.
No enemies for them here.
Bring in foreign foes?

Let's try that again. For some reason, blogger isn't liking the formatting.
