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 - Dancers


Here are my dancing girls after the Disney-themed recital.   The grand finale was "Step in time" from Mary Poppins.  All the competition tap dancers were chimney sweeps - hence the white shirts and smudged faces.  The small girls large group did "Bake a Cake" from Snow White.

They were all terrific!

Flashing feet, bright smiles,
Arms reaching to catch a dream:
All my dancing girls.



  1. The smudges do make them so endearing!


    Woman in the yellow coat,
    Are you heading for a boat?
    Or perhaps you need a bus
    To get far away from us.
    Whether wheels or sails you take
    Don’t forget the chocolate cake
    To sustain you on your way;
    Yellow-lover, now we say,
    “Go with grace, enjoy the ride,
    See you on the other side!”
