Welcome to Jennie And Drew's Haikus, the place where ancient Japanese poetry collides head-on with movies. Is the end result a twisted mangled wreck, or a delicate lotus flower? That's for you to decide.

There's now a swell sub-page right here where you, yes you, can display your own movie-themed haikus to the world. It's easy enough, just follow the structure below, which is 5 syllables, then 7, then 5. Feel free to submit your masterpieces to, and we'll alert you when your art is put on display.

Haikus which have an on top contain spoilers, meaning they contain plot points that could conceivably "spoil" a movie for you. Read those at your own risk.
