Our favorite fun and brainy Haikus

- Techne, the philoso­pher, wonders:

Solve the big ques­tions:
How do I know when I know?
Who knows the knower?

- Steve, the envi­ron­men­tal­ist, requests:

Neu­ro­plas­tic good.
Plas­tic, though lasts for­ever.
Always recycle!

- GTB, the skep­tic, says

Haiku’s are easy
But some­times they don’t make sense

- Mil­lie, the spir­i­tual, suggests:

Play­ing music feeds
my soul while read­ing music
nur­tures my old brain.

- Mark, the opti­mist, reflects:

I thought I did well
Then I reviewed my answers
I am retard

- jolovli, the boomer, tries again:

improv­ing func­tion
smoked too much weed in col­lege
it’s never too late

- Lloyd, the stressed-out, volunteers:

I thought so damn Hard.
My brain built lots of pres­sure.
I farted out loud.

Enjoy many other good ones:

New infor­ma­tion
Syn­the­siz­ing my knowl­edge
A for­ward movement

Painfully easy
Sig­nif­i­cantly harder

Like watch­ing the Earth open
One thought at a time

But the tests are much harder,
Need more grey matter

Can per­form bet­ter,
Learn­ing, train­ing, and prac­tice
Body, brain and mind

some­one should find a quick fix
every­one needs to speak

for the brain to endeav­our
sooner than later

Brain hurts so badly
Work­ing night shift: not so fun
Need to get some sleep

The sun rose very early
Good­morn­ing to you

first white is purple

or it was red I think

now haiku, what next?

- Stacey

I thought is was fun.
Then it got a lot harder.
Wow i suck at this.

- anon

oh boy I won­der
will my teeny lit­tle ears
still hear loud thunder

of course it is true
the afore­men­tioned thun­der
came out of the blue

from the blue you say
I think per­haps you are wrong
but it’s still okay

Yours , please?

    all orga­nized now
