The Lighter Side of JzB

Here you will find photos, poetry, and possibly some light-hearted foolishness. For the Heavier Side

Every day visits*
From Moose, Goose, and Orb Weaver
All seized by Haiku

"Why moose and goose?" you may ask. Back on 2/04/13 Pirate wrote a haiku with an elk in it, and I responded with
one with a moose and then included him every day. A few days later in comments Mystic asked "Where's the goose?"
So I started including her with this post on 2/07. A week later on the 14th, Mark Readfern
asked for and received a spider. The rest is history.

*Well, most days, anyway. Grant me a bit of poetic license.

Haiku Heights - prompt 32 - Mirage

You think you see it
But you can't get close.  How can
You reach that far place?

Not an illusion -
A stolen peek into an
Other universe.

A freak wormhole that
Gives a view to somewhere else.
How can we escape?

What is this image?
A hidden doorway opens.
Who will enter here?



  1. Oh, heck, I'll be the first one to enter!


    Many shadow-seekers say,
    “Oh, the one that got away!”
    Why are you so uptight, folks?
    Can’t you take light’s little jokes?

    Mystic -

    With Shadow drinkers you might see
    A cup of hot black pekoe tea,
    Or in their dark mugs there might be
    A depth of milkless black coffee.

    For Black Russians they will cheer;
    They quaff Stout Guinness without fear,
    In shadow's gloom one thing is clear:
    They will NEVER drink LIGHT Beer!


  5. Oh, yes - it's all in the perception! I percept, therefore I yam. Nice post!!

  6. I love the interplay of multiple haikus here and what a mysterious ending. Nicely written.

  7. All are beautiful.. keep writing..

  8. the theme in the series was consistent.....nice!
