Curiosity, innovation and problem solving; a discussion in haiku

Innovation is:

a four syllable word that

doesn’t fit well in a haiku.

(Not a haiku.)

~~~

Reading is:

an adventure, that stimulates the mind,

and may lead to innovation.

(Not a haiku.)

~~~

Curiosity:

Feeds the spirit and also

fits in a haiku.

(A haiku.)

~~~

Innovation asks,

Where is curiosity?

You are needed here.

(A haiku.)

~~~

To solve hard problems,

Ask first, “What is the answer?”

Not, “Can it be solved?”

(A haiku.)

~~~

Problems can be solved,

When there’s also belief that

An answer exists.

(A haiku.)

~~~
