Last week to enter Active Trans’ Haiku-Palooza

Share your experiences biking, walking or using public transportation in Chicagoland in the form of a haiku! This is the final week for Active Trans' haiku contest. Deadline to submit haikus is Oct. 21. /

Here’s one to get you going — a contest submission by Josh Grode Wolters.

Liz Kramer submitted several haikus with the note: I write missed connection bike haikus to people who make me angry or happy on my commute. Here's one of her submissions.

Is a pleasure; fear leaves me.
That's my goal most days.

If you've been putting off your submission, now's the time. Read the rules and submission details here.
