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.

Sensational Haiku Wednesday - HOPE


Look to the future
Something to work (or fight) for
Plan a better fate

Join the fun!


  1. Hope does take work and sometimes fighting for, not just fairy dust wishes.

  2. this is really sweet but if it is fate can it be planed LOL? Just askin'

  3. Ria -

    You raise a good point. But I don't believe fate is cast in granite. It defines a range of possibilities that constrains the scope of actions, but does not eliminate it.

    Every moment you make an active or passive decision that effects the path of your future life.


  4. What happens if I look back? Do I get turned into a block of salt? :-)

  5. Look into your past
    Squint hard to make it better
    With a grain of salt.


  6. Very well said, my friend!

    I could learn a lot from my past... if I could only remember it ;) Having a plan is paramount - fate is sometimes too busy to care.

  7. Sigh!! :( Nothing ever works according to my plan :( and I still hope!!


This is a fun blog. Light-hearted banter is welcome. Snark is not. If you want to fight, find my other blog.

Play nice, and we'll all have fun.

I like to return visit, when I can - but I need to find you. If you have multiple blogs, please leave a direct link to the appropriate post.
