The Lighter Side of JzB

Here you will find photos, poetry, and possibly some light-hearted foolishness. For the Heavier Side
of JzB
see my other blog,
Retirement Blues. (There be dragons!)

I claim copyright and reserve all rights for my original material of every type and genre.

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 #83 - Narcissus


Daffodils blooming beside my mother-in-law's driveway - Spring 2010 

Late Winter blossoms
Might bloom in February
Live into Summer

 ~  ~  ~  ~  ~

Yellow daffodils
More hardy than the crocus
Who bloom and soon croak
 ~  ~  ~  ~  ~

Beautiful young man
Forget your fair reflection
Go find real love

 ~  ~  ~  ~  ~

Be quiet, mother
Before I love another
I must love me first

 ~  ~  ~  ~  ~

I sing of myself
The best song I've ever heard
And I look good too
