Font haiku contest winners, Sept. 19 - 23

Who knew three lines and seventeen syllables could be so varied? Thanks for kicking off our contest with your exquisite font haikus - we had a heck of a time picking a top five. We did it anyway, and this week we're featuring submissions from @carlyrounds, @alanady, @katiefritz, @clubicy, and @designcabin. Congratulations to all of you!
