Why Do Haiku? Villanelle Is Swell.Haiku is fun. The haiku contests at the Alibi are a big hit (look for the 2011 edition in September). It's a chance to show off one's 5-7-5 chops. Until then, why not give villanelle a try?

Winners of our 2010 Haiku Contest
Writing haiku sounds really, really simple, doesn't it? The form is elementary: Just five, seven and five syllables, and wham-o, you've got a poem. It's not as easy as it sounds, though. Since the early August announcement of this here contest, I've been trying to think up a congratulatory haiku for all the entrants and have come up with exactly nothing.
