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 - Wishes


An old saying tells
Us: "If wishes were fishes,
We'd all cast a net."

What if I wish for
A Castanet?  Could I then
Dance with such sweet rhythm?

What if I wish for
Mickey Mouse days?  My fav'rite
In the cast: ANNETTE!

Cast your wishes to
The sea, to see what fine fish
find tempting: a net!


Join the fun!


  1. This is a fine--and fun--little collection of wishy/fishy haiku! I'm smiling! :-)

  2. Any time I can generate a smile, it's a good day.


  3. Great haikus! The first is my favorite :)

  4. I have a cat named Goldie - we affectionately call her "fishy-wishy" or "goldfish" ... as she is draped over my laptop at the moment absorbing all the computer energy and staring at the screen - I can only add she loves the fish ones ... I forgot Annette ever wore toe-shoes! Great job in accomplishing the smile quota!!

  5. Beautiful videos!

    My shadows, hope you can visit and see. Have a great week ahead!
