Happy Birthday to Beer Haiku Daily!

Day in and day out
the foam rises and words bloom
another fine dawn

Each day I wonder
Which new beer? What new haiku?
It’s not a bad job.

In case you wonder
the beer is a metaphor
we celebrate life

A week of beer!

References: On June 16, 2005, Beer Haiku Daily was born. In the year since, I have actually kept the relentless promise of the title and published at least one new haiku every day. Some I wrote, some were contributed by my loyal and creative readers. Some were good, some… well… not so much. (But hey, I didn’t promise a good beer haiku daily.) In any case, the point was to have fun. Little did I know that I would tap into the vastly under-represented demographic of beer haikuists.

The past year has been a blast and I owe it to you. Thank you for partaking. Thank you for reading, commenting, and contributing to the universe of beer haiku.

If it sounds like this is my swan song… don’t be fooled. This is just the end of my rookie year of publishing beer haiku. I have every intention of becoming the Cal Ripken Jr. of beer haiku and I hope you stick around for the ride!

If you have not yet done so, please consider subscribing to my RSS feed. It’s an easy way of getting your daily serving of beer haiku delivered anywhere you like. You can get it on your My Yahoo, My Google, My MSN page or in your favorite feed reader.

Also, if you know someone who would enjoy reading or writing beer haiku please send them a link. Spread the word, spread the cheer.

Thanks again for joining the fun! Remember this is just the beginning. Cheers!

  1. […] References: This is one of my favorites from the batch of haiku that B1-66er wrote to celebrate the first anniversary of Beer Haiku Daily. You can read the full batch on his site. I attempted to build off of his humorous and provocative post, but PT Barnum I ain’t, so we are left with this anti-climactic finale. All is not lost though… the American Cancer Society got 20 bucks in honor of the Kingdom of Finnmark because B1 chose door number 3 for his prize. […]
