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.

Sensational Haiku Wednesday + 3WW CCCXIII

Only one day late.

The SHW theme is a traditional nature themed haiku.

Though the sun shines bright
The cold is biting today
Winter has arrived

It's unusal to see a haiku in upside down pyramid geometry.  Somehow, that shape pleases me.

And for 3WW

Icy and polite
Old lovers meet in Winter
And brag in silence

~  ~

In January
It is not polite to brag
Of icy feelings

Join the fun!


  1. we have the same vibe for the biting cold, it's a vicious brute!

  2. Your "icy and polite" haiku is a perfect little work of art! I bow in homage to it.

    Silk and Sky

  3. Nicely! I do like the way you get the seasonal element into your Haiku.

    My 3WW is HERE

  4. I have no desire for cold but some rain would be jolly. Interesting haikus, a form I really struggle with.


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

Play nice, and we'll all have fun.
