The Lighter Side of JzB

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.

Mellow Yellow Monday

Some incidental yellow here in pictures taken a few Januaries ago at the Plymouth Winter Festival.

Kellogg park was temporary home to a variety of ice sculptures.   Temps were in the upper 30's that day, and the Moose had a runny nose.

Great frozen creatures,
Denizens of an ice age,
My thaws are with you.



  1. A moose with a runny nose? Oh, what a snotty commentary on the sculpture, Jazz!


    Hush, little baby, it’s no time to cry,
    Mama will sing you a sweet lullaby—

    A bright rainbow song on this darksome night,
    A bright rainbow song that’s sure to delight:

    Green are the pastures where flocks of sheep graze;
    Grey and begrimed are the skies on fog-days.

    Red is the color of sun going down;
    Black is the smudge of a terrible frown.

    Blue are the mountains that rise from the plain;
    Shimmering golden the Kansas wheat-grain.

    So many colors, my baby, my fair!
    So many colors right here and right there!

    And thinking of colors under the sun,
    Yellow’s the brightest of all, little one!

  2. I love the ice sculptures--I'm always in awe of people that can make them. Takes talent and creativity. Love the haiku.

  3. My thaws are with you too! (hilarious)
