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 #103 - Heath

I spent a frustrating half hour vainly searching for information on North American heathlands, and have tentatively concluded that there aren't any.  So this offering is a bit generic.  Still, I'm rather pleased with it.

South Stack Cliffs RSPB Nature Reserve – Anglesey, North Wales

Sunrise warms the heath
Bees stir in gorse and heather
A wild bird calls out

From the image link I learned that among the birds you might hear calling out from the heath at South Stack Cliffs are peregrin falcons and chough, an increasingly rare member of the crow family.


  1. You've set a perfectly lovely scene with buzzing bees ag calling birds and I can almost feel the sun! Nicely done!

  2. I like the imagery you've painted here with your words. I can feel, smell, hear and see the whole scene in front of my eyes. Really a haiku as it is meant to be JzB. Thank you for sharing this treasure with Carpe Diem.

  3. you created a gorgeous setting...the sun warming my face..


This is a fun blog. Light-hearted banter is welcome. Snark is not. If you want to fight, find my other blog.
