Haiku Review Time

Ready to win an autographed hardback of Mudbound by Hillary Jordan?
Why Maggie, I don't know nothin' 'bout writin' no hi-kus!
Don't be silly! We won't follow those stiff Japanese rules. No need to mention the season or what happens to be bloomin' in the backyard. Let's keep it simple and use the 5-7-5 format, as in 5 syllables for the first line, 7 syllables for the second, and 5 for the ending. Place your Southern Haiku in a post then leave a post specific URL on Mister Linky here. One may enter as many times as a haiku is written for southern books read this summer. Contest ends July 31, 2009.
For fun, you may choose not to tell the book's title and let bloggers guess. Here is an example of one I recently read. Too easy, huh?!?
The quick brown fox jumps
amazingly over the
la*y dog sans z.

Are we supposed to post the haiku on our blog and just put the link in the comment? That's what I'll try to do. Let me know if I am wrong!

Down here in Dixie
Words flow like warm molasses
Dripping off the tongue.
