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 #91 - Seahawk


Seahawks soar above
The water's churning surface
Fish soar under waves

Fly closer to me
Pandion haliaetus
Bring me your message

Bring me your message
Lend your wings to my spirit
Noble predator


  1. i really like the image that comes to my mind from your first haiku! it's like the sea's surface is the transparent barrier that separates 2 different worlds.. of fish and birds.. lovely!

  2. Lend your wings for my spirit to fly high...
    Wonderful! Ese

  3. Awesome! The last two haiku are for sure my favorite. I love the way you've used 'messenger of the skies' in this. Let the message of the sky be good for you.


  4. Love the line' lend your wings to my spirit' powerful ~
