Obama Is Three Syllables, Haiku Lovers

Well, here's a handful of ways you can celebrate, commemorate, and otherwise contemplate President Obama’s inauguration: Start at 3:30 p.m. at the Palm Beach Poetry Festival, where the public is invited to share their original poetry in honor of Barack. Expect unchecked enthusiasm, haikus, and people looking for a word that rhymes with “hope.” The festival runs through January 24 at Old School Square, located at 51 N. Swinton Ave. in Delray Beach. Visit palmbeachpoetryfestival.org.
