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.

Friday Flash 55

I haven't tasted human flesh yet, but I have written a Friday Flash 55.


The green of fairie's eyes varies with lighting and mood -- yours and hers.

Emerald in sunlight or passion; moss or fern in winter, or low light.

Jade if angered or you hurt them badly.

Under filtered moonlight, or at dusk [if you are especially pensive] they can appear gray.

But that is an illusion.

This is reduced to 55 words from a comment I left at Jasmine Calyx.   It was rather stream of consciousness at the time, and doubly so now.


  1. ha. interesting...would not mind seeing a fairy...though i do have green eyes...

  2. A fairy is always a wonderful creature to imagine and read about :)

  3. This is so....Absinthe-esque!
    Most excellent job of word trimming My Friend
    Thanks for visiting so many other 55ers today as well.
    Loved your verde 55
    Thanks for playing, and have a Kick Ass Week-End

  4. Thanks for the visits.

    I didn't know about the Absinthe connection.

    See how you can learn things if you're not careful . . .


  5. Beautiful. I can see those moody eyes.


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.
