Your Haiku, please?

Haiku brain exerciseIn our Top 50 Brain Teasers post, we con­clud­ed with the challenge:

#50. Can you write a haiku describ­ing your expe­ri­ence doing some of the pre­vi­ous teasers? The sim­ple rules: write 3 lines, which don’t need to rhyme, con­tain­ing 5,7, and 5 syl­la­bles. You can leave your haiku as a com­ment for extra points…

There has been a num­ber of great and fun tak­ers so far…enjoy their haikus below! And Hap­py Thanksgiving.

- Ter­ry says:

New infor­ma­tion
Syn­the­siz­ing my knowledge
A for­ward movement

- Frank says:

Painful­ly easy
Sig­nif­i­cant­ly harder
Men­tal stimulus

- Mark says:

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

- Chuck says:

This was fun, and no,
I don’t intend to haiku.
Thanks for post­ing it

- Sarah says:

find­ing your teasers
added fun to my morning,
helped wake my brain up

- Lor­raine says:

teach­ing math is fun
when you find great resources
sharp brains is the place

    As my mind expands,
    it grasps new ide-…oh look

    the noon hour portends
    a bur­ri­to with salsa
    bright­en­ing my tongue

    See I think I see
    Here now, not so — real­ly real?
    Wound­ed, mind leaves me

    A wake­up call to

    jog the brain,
    reach what can be

    just prac­tice, practice

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

    Wow, many thanks for those fun haikus :-)

    GTB: yours is pret­ty spec­tac­u­lar :-) if refrig­er­a­tors had brains, what would they use them for?

    new thoughts activate
    frontal lobe work hard, harder
    no senility

    nice, Lisa!

    a long morn­ing in june
    look­ing at birds
