The Lighter Side of JzB

Here you will find photos, poetry, and possibly some light-hearted foolishness. For the Heavier Side

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 #87 - Yesterday

Four thoughts on Yesterday

Just one day ago
Before these problems surfaced
A much simpler time

~  ~  ~  ~  ~
Then I was alone
Nor was I even searching
Now I am with you

~  ~  ~  ~  ~

That road lies behind
Never to be trod again
Now forget the past

~  ~  ~  ~  ~

The road we've traveled
We are in between that and
The road yet to be

Carpe Diem # 87


  1. very reflective haiku ~ favorite is the last one ~ ....road yet to be ^_^

    (A Creative Harbor aka ArtMuseDog and Carol ^_^)

  2. Simple and reflective haiku; the last one is my fav.

  3. ah, the twists and turns of life...

  4. 2nd one is my fave! All deceptively simple if we want them to be, but very full when we let them be.

  5. Nice set on a tough prompt! Love the last one!

  6. deep messages in such few words. I especially like the last one and the knowledge of in-between-ness. So true.

    The first one is a thought I think rather often.


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