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

a bur­ri­to with sal­sa
bright­en­ing my tongue

Brain train­ing oth­ers
Like watch­ing the Earth open
One thought at a time

- Bruce

My brain stem works hard,
But the tests are much hard­er,
Need more grey mat­ter

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

- ter­ri

some­one should find a quick fix
every­one needs to speak

Aha, a chal­lenge
for the brain to endeav­our
soon­er than lat­er

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

It is morn­ing now
The sun rose very ear­ly
Good­morn­ing to you

- kestrel

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?
