All month long, we're looking for your best food-related haikus via Twitter or posted to our Facebook wall– if you're tweeting, simply include @Foodista at the end of your tweets so we can acknowledge your masterpieces (this does not count towards your haiku's syllable limit).
In case you need a high school English refresher, Haiku is a three-line poem with 5 syllables on the first line, 7 on the second, and 5 again on the third. Because of this lingual limitation, haiku is one of the most Twitter-friendly forms of poetry– try squeezing a Shakespearean sonnet into 140 characters.
Your food haikus can convey the humor of eating something that isn't what you thought it was, the sweetness of a memory of your grandmother baking pie, the sadness of finishing the last delicious morsel of your favorite dish – any emotion you wish to express. The only requirements are that it be a legitimate haiku (no 5-7-6, people) and about food.
