Hummingbird mothThe winners have been announced in the 2012 Hexapod Haiku Challenge!
You can see all of them on the NCSU Insect Museum Blog.

I especially liked this one, probably because I am contemplating some big changes in my life right now:

Molting is a must
The vehicle is renewed
Same old heavy soul
Anish Thakkar; Raleigh, NC
They also have some classic haiku and other short poems; this one is profoundly true:
Even with insects—
some can sing,
some can’t.

Kobayashi Issa, 1763–1828

Check them all out for a nice break.
