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 - Living

I took this picture of a toad that had crawled into a empty spot in a partially planted flower flat.  No idea what it was doing there, but it was cozy place and it lingered there for a few hours.  By evening, it had hopped off somewhere, going about its toady business.  In the last few days I've seen several tiny new toads, each no bigger than a fingernail - the next brown, warty generation.

Here's a close-up.


Circle through my yard in their
Own cycle of life.

Join the fun!


  1. True - there's a whole invisible eco system in my yard I only see remnants of later.

  2. I think this particular living thing is rather cute-ish (notice I didn't say "cute"!).

  3. I love toads and frogs :) We have tons of them in the pond and creek at the bottom of our property, and they serenade us at night.

    Nicely done!

  4. It is very beautiful photograph you shared. Spring is such a beautiful time to take photographs of awesome flowers or nature colours.


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.
