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.

A Sunday Whirl - Wordle 63

My first shot at this little word game.  Read all about it here.

I've composed a cryptic and very short story using the 12 specified words, and an even more cryptic poem using only those 12 words.  You can tell me if they make any sense.


I don't know who sent me the snapshots. A gesture of blackmail, I suppose.  What do they want from me?  It's left me hanging.

In them my lips touch the skin of the thin woman I stand next to.  No - I won't utter the name of that .  .  . other. 

Oh, what cruel and devious art.



Snapshots sent. 
Hanging art?
Stand.   Utter.
Other thin lips touch skin.

 Whirl Along Here.


  1. Oh, well done! These are both great!

  2. Well wordled! Working with the Whirl is fun.
    That first one...ooh, I read something else today that reminded me of a PI taking those photos!
    That was another prompt...I think over at We Write Poems. The second one reminds me of those White faced Gals with the lips that never move who play guitars...Or models that pretend to air kiss as to not to disturb their make-up.
    I also went with a photo - in a different direction:


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.
