Here are some more of our favorite Country Haiku submissions, from the sweet to the less so.

By Heather Kauffman:

Far from the bright lights
The lonely, lost, and loveless
Sing of truth in twang

By David Ferguson:

It's the sound you hear
when lonely men and women
break each other's hearts.

By Jim Tragos:

Trailer park heartbreak
Suddenly becomes sublime,
Sung with steel guitar.

and

After six months drunk,
I finally write that ballad.
I move on with life.

By Lonnie Been:

Cheating and being
cheated on. That's the essence
of country music.

By Timothy G. Owens:

Hound dogs and hooters,
Either one can break a heart.
Keep your bone at home.

By Tom Allen:

My life sucks enough
This music is what I get?
I shoulda been punk.
