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?
