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 #89 - Tomorrow


When tomorrow comes
One more opportunity
One more step through life

 ~  ~  ~  ~  ~

What is it bringing
Only tomorrow can say
What is it taking

 ~  ~  ~  ~  ~

When it arrives here
Today becomes yesterday
Tomorrow is now

 ~  ~  ~  ~  ~

The first future step
From today to tomorrow
The last of the past

I can't say I'm especially pleased with this set. It all seems trite and obvious.

  11. "It all seems trite and obvious." No, not at all! It makes it hart for me to find something on tomorrow this evening.
