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 - Freestyle

This sad August, three
People I love have lost one
That they loved, to death.

Funerals are for
The living.  To mourn and to
Celebrate a life.

My sister's husband,
The mother of a dear friend,
My wife's aged aunt.

Rest in peace.
You were loved and will be missed.

Join the fun!


  1. Such a wonderful tribute to all of them.
    May they rest in peace.
    Beautiful post!
    Mine is here
    Have you an AWESOME WEEK!

  2. sorry for your losses....I couldn't help but chuckle though, at 'loved to death'....

  3. I just can't resist a word play, no matter how grim.


  4. Mystic -

    No, that's not it. You mourn the death and celebrate the life.



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.
