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 #93 -- Cave


What would Sigmund say
About spelunking all night
In my vivid dreams

~  ~  ~  ~  ~

Let's go spelunking
There in the deepest dark cave
We'll find adventure

A home for hobbits
Under the ground - or is it
A home for Gollum

~  ~  ~  ~  ~

A forlorn halfling
Riddles for a gold ring with
A poor doomed creature

~  ~  ~  ~  ~

Home to trolls and worse
Is this hole in the ground a
Storehouse of treasure


  1. Hehehe, funny spelunking.
    What a cave you have found! Freud's comment not suitable for children.
    I love the adventure in the other three...very suitable for all children.

  2. my haiku fits perfectyl with your first photo. hahaha outstanding! lol

  3. Great set! I especially loved the first!

  4. Amazing set of haiku, love the last three on Gollum ... really this series feels like a fairy tale. Thank you for sharing these on Carpe Diem.

  5. Sigmund? You mean a cigarette? Cuz we all probably need one.


  6. Sigmund would wonder and find either something that really was here or something that wasn' t at all. :)
    Wonderful approach to the theme...with that humorous spark. Ese

  7. Dear me! Actually with some amusement I wonder if kz has seen your first haiku with picture..there is a certain parallel..

  8. an extremely cool collection... you are such a sharp wit....
