Philly.Com Shares Our Love Of Haikus

Street loves haikus. We write haikus about ingredients like quinoa and kid classics like applesauce. We even enjoy writing about people who write haikus.

But are you a haiku champion? Philly.com is making our favorite 5/7/5 beat syllable poems a competitive sport with its Live Haiku Challenge. From 12-1 PM each day, there is a topic that you can write a haiku about. All submissions are posted live, so you can see what the competition comes up with. It's fun for all, but only the winner can declare: I AM HAIKU CHAMPION!

If you have a favorite haiku, share it with us in the comments!
