A haiku contest for National Haiku Day

Little did I know when I woke up this morning that today is National Haiku Day!  I’ll be honest, I had planned to give you poor people a break, which I thought would be well-deserved after foisting yesterday’s ridiculously long post on you.

(Not to mention that I’m still mostly too giddy about the whole signing-with-Foreword Lit thing to write a post that would make any kind of rational sense.  But that’s neither here nor there.)

Anyway, clearly, I couldn’t possibly allow National Haiku Day to slip past without, you know, a haiku.  So, here you go:

No post planned today
But! National Haiku Day!
Like this haiku, please?

Hey, I didn’t say it’d be good, did I?

Fine, hotshot, think you can do better?  Let’s hear it.  Yeah, that’s right, time to bring out your haiku best. Let’s see what you’ve got. Tweet it, post it on facebook, or leave it in the comments. We want to read your National Haiku Day haiku.

And just for fun—because let’s face it, I’ve got nothing to give away as a prize but old, wired PC keyboards missing letters—on the off chance I get more than three entries, I’ll pick my favorites and post them tomorrow. 

Sure, it’s not exactly the lottery, but your odds of winning are a helluva lot better, I’m guessing.  So get ‘em in!
