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.

Carpe Diem #77 - Icicles




ICICLES

Spies at my window
Glistening with star secrets
Those cold evesdroppers


~  ~  ~  ~  ~


A clear frozen flow
That reflects the round worldscape
Dripping in sunshine


~  ~  ~  ~  ~ 

In desert winter
No icicles to stick you
Just cactus needles

~  ~  ~  ~  ~

Piercing Icicle
Deep in my left ventricle
As cold as lost love


 ~  ~  ~  ~  ~

 Cold flowing sadness
As you drift away from me
Ice blade in my heart


 ~  ~  ~  ~  ~

Icicle prison
At the universe's end
Doom of entropy


~  ~  ~  ~  ~ 
[And for a touch of the macabre]

It melts in the sink
Perfect to bludgeon or stab:
Murder implement

  2. Wow, Brian de Palma or master Hitchcock would have loved your haiku for one of their movies.
    This is my fav:
    Piercing Icicle
    Deep in my left ventricle
    As cold as lost love


    I am trembling!
