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.

Sensational Haiku Wednesday - Health


My cardiac kid
Had surgery at one week.
Now he's in good health.

Grandson Nate was born with transposition of the great arteries, and had open heart surgery as a new-born.  He'll be 9 in August.  Here is a video clip from last night's baseball game.   He went 4 for 5, and pitched an inning.

Heath is a precious
Gift.  Don't throw it away with
Bad lifestyle habits.

Join the fun!


  1. Woot! Go Nate!!

    Very positive haiku - LOVE!

  2. Wise words in that second Haiku the first your family is very fortunate!

  3. Nate is definietly a medical miracle!

    The truth of your second Haiku becomes more evident as I get older.

  4. Awesome on Nate ~~ proud Papa :-)
