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

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.
