The exercise: 

Two haiku about: intelligence.

Back to work in the garden today, but tried to take it a little easy after a long day yesterday. Tonight we enjoyed our first taste of this year's veggies - steamed greens with dinner! Yum, we've been waiting a long time for that. 


"My intelligence
is secret, you can't see it."
I think he's just dumb. 

*     *     * 

My brain is sleeping -
the sign across my eyes reads:
Please do not disturb.

I liked your piece yesterday :) I think the first bit got up before midnight, the second a little after, but that's based on me having time to post between the two.

Ah, vegetables fresh from the garden -- nothing beats the taste!
I like your second haiku best today, I think.
Oh, and a quick heads up: I'm off to Pretoria from Thursday evening for a week, and as I understand the situation there, I'm unlikely to have any internet connection at all. So I won't be able to post until I'm back -- probably best to expect the Saturday. I'm not hiding though :)

Oxymorons rule!
Mil'tary Intelligence
Is my favourite.


The AI watches,
Seeing humans like children,
Protecting, for now.

He's a Star Trek Fan
And knows when to bring flowers
Smart men are sexy

There are different kinds of intelligence:

He thinks he knows best
Never listens to advice
Should I warn of quicksand?

She can't pay the bills
Always forgets boiling pans --
She can grow flowers!

On a whim he shows -
To the intelligent few
a simplicity.


One plus one is two,
Maths can be easy and fun -
A smart attitude.

Greg - thanks for letting me know, and enjoy your visit!

That 'for now' in the second haiku works so well. Nicely done.

Shauna - haha, sounds like a great catch :)

And welcome to the blog! I hope to see more writing from you.

Morganna - your first one made me smile, as did the second. I can't pick a favorite!

Watermark - really like that first one. Very nicely done.
