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.

100WCGU -- #69


Ah what wondrous heavenly delight
That I would place into my eager mouth

You know I know you want to take that last
Smooth (creamy and dark on the outside)

Crunchy (from the almond deep within)
Morsel on your eager tongue as well

But suppose that I would get there first
Place the chocolate lovingly inside

Would you moue your lovely tasty lips
To form a petulant and sulky pout

Or press them up so thoughtfully to mine
Hoping to obtain a lover's share

Of a sweet and co-indulgent treat

This comes in at 90 words. I had to - with great reluctance - delete what was originally the 2nd couplet, since that took it to 104.  Alas and alack.

Better still with almonds at the core
You will, my dear, most certainly agree

Though, upon further reflection, it does seem unnecessary to the final product.  Still, without it, I never would have put it all together.


  1. I guess that's as good a way as any to buy love!

  2. I think of it as sharing, not buying.

    But love always involves some sort of a bargain.


  3. This is my favourite this week, beautifully done!


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.
