We asked for your haiku, we read veggie burger-themed haiku, and the FOOD52 staff even threw their hats in the ring. Now it's time to declare a winner.

The only problem? You're all amazing! We couldn't pick just one -- and there's no prize, anyway -- so we thought we'd highlight all our favorites. You all blew us away with your eloquent words -- add "poet" to the list along with "home cook"!

We ran a food poem once, for the explicit purpose of starting our days off with a different kind of food writing, to be read over our very first cup of coffee. After that first cup, the rest is almost always dedicated to food feature articles and recipes and headnotes, so we figured that a bit of food musing, spun into poetic form, was a welcome change of pace. 

So, then: our official first poem of Food Poem Fridays is a manifesto of sorts on the ideals of life, written by Wendell Berry. Read slowly, sip your coffee, and then head off to work.

This is just to say, that we’d like to start the day off a little differently than we normally do. Today, we have a food poem for you. Read it while you sip your morning coffee. Don’t worry, we have plenty of news (and tips, and recipes) to come, but for now, enjoy these words spun about harvest and sustenance and lentils. It’s a great way to wake up.
