Your Haiku, Please?

We con­clud­ed our Top 50 Brain Teasers post with the chal­lenge: Haiku brain exercise

#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. There were a num­ber of great and fun takers…you can enjoy their haikus below.

Let’s now change the theme: Can you write a haiku describ­ing what prob­lem you would like to see brain research solve? Remem­ber 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…

Pre­vi­ous haikus on brain exer­cise:

- My favorite, by GTB:

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

- A close second…Mark says:

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

- Ter­ry says:

New infor­ma­tion
Syn­the­siz­ing my knowl­edge
A for­ward move­ment

- Frank says:

Painful­ly easy
Sig­nif­i­cant­ly hard­er
Men­tal stim­u­lus

- 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

- Psalm says

As my mind expands,
it grasps new ideas…oh look
there’s some­thing shiny!!

- Hizam says

now i know 2
oh i for­got the oth­er one

- anon writes

the noon hour por­tends
a bur­ri­to with sal­sa
bright­en­ing my tongue

- Mike says

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

- Lisa

new thoughts acti­vate
frontal lobe work hard, hard­er
no senil­i­ty

Yours , please?
