MINNEAPOLIS - Izzy's Ice Cream is hiring 25 workers this May, and they are marking National Poetry month by using Haiku poetry in hopes of attracting the cream of the crop.

A Haiku is a Japanese poem consisting of seventeen syllables, in three lines of five, seven, and five. Here's an example Izzy's provided to get inspiration flowing:

A spoon raises high
Cold greets lips, flavor behind
Inhale, taste, exhale.
