Exciting news!

I know what you're thinking: "That FiveSevenFive. She is so derivative. I could do a much better job of writing classical Japanese poetry about modern crap."

You're in luck. As of today, A Life in 5-7-5 is accepting reader submissions for publication on the blog! Here's how it works:

1. Encapsulate your musings into a 17-syllable poem following the traditional 5-7-5 haiku format.

2. Email your submission to Be sure to note the name you would like to have attached to your haiku if it is selected for publication on A Life in 5-7-5 (or whether you wish to remain anonymous), and your geographic area. Feel free to include an explanation of your haiku, but only the haiku will be posted.

3. Depending on the amount of interest, I may publish several haiku each week in addition to the daily posting. Be sure to check back daily to see if your submission has been posted.

In closing, here is a special bonus haiku to get you started:

I can't wait to read
Your many witticisms
Let's see what you've got
