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.

Carpe Diem #74 - Fireplace

For Thanksgiving we had all 11 grandchildren [and their parents] together at our house.  This only happens one or twice a year, so it's always a special time for all involved.




Above our fireplace
With the wood duck print all of
Our grandchildren framed




The stockings were hung
By the chimney not with care
With childish chaos

  13. Thanks, all -

    I guess how the grandchildren react depends on how you frame the issue.

    And, as you can see, they all were acquitted.

    Cheers!
