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.

Five Sentence Fiction - Zombie


Gil's wife will be home from her 2nd shift job in a few minutes, so he has to hurry.

He's creeped out by sneaking through the grave yard this late on a cloudy night, but it's the quickest way home from Marci's apartment.

He knows why there's a spiky metal fence around the cemetery - people are dying to get in.

Whoa - who is that ragged looking character shambling toward him?

And what are those things climbing up out of the graves?

Here is a link to The FSF Control Center.


  1. "...people are dying to get in." That is an old line, but still a really good one!



  2. This totally made me think of Thriller by Michael Jackson. Well, minus the cheating husband. :)

  3. And the moral of the story is "Cheaters never win..." I agree with CC. This did have that "Thriller" quality to it. Nice jobs.

  4. I imagine he won't be climbing into that window anymore. Nice story :)


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.
