Haiku Friday: Mice

AnimalsToday my haiku is from August 7th of my new book A Haiku Book of Days, for Students of Animals, Birds, Insects, and Other Teachers, one of a 7-book series. The topic for today is: “Skill”

mice can squeeze themselves
into holes the size of dimes
what a handy skill

It’s Haiku Friday again. For the past twenty years or so, it has been my practice to write one haiku every day. Every Friday I share a haiku here, about whatever topic I happen to choose. I invite you to write a haiku on this topic too, and share it with me and the readers of this blog. Just write it in the Comments below. The only rules are: 1) your haiku must be about the named topic; 2) you must follow the 5-7-5 syllable format; 3) no obscenities or hate (I will delete those). That’s it.

You can purchase this book on Amazon here.
