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 # 112 - Buddha

Under the blue sky
Above the soil of the earth
Find the middle way

~ : ~

As an
Found that path wanting
Buddha show us the middle way

 ~ : ~

Buddha help me find
The way to escape from Yer
Pirate's spam filter
~ : ~


  1. Welcome to Pirate's spam, it's very dark in the hold of his ship and I didn't spot you here. We can plan a mutiny, eh, matey!!
    I always enjoy my visits to your jam sessions JzB! You are hilarious. See you in Pirate's spam!

  2. I'm laughing (sorry) at your plaintive plea to Buddha. I hope Yer Pirate reads and heeds. By doing so, he could become Buddha's helper!

  3. Pirate hasn't commented here in a while.

    He probably thinks I don't reciprocate.



  4. The first one is well done and 'spot on' ~ the second one rather quizzical and 3rd ~ Fun!

    Carol of: (A Creative Harbor) ^_^

  5. Buddha as a middle way is very agreeable. You were in my spam filter for a while. But no longer :-)

  6. Wonderful and with a your haiku always are, JzB.

  7. Nice, and I love the one about the spam filter. A good laugh over my morning coffee.

  8. Wonderful JzB ... I like that one about Yer Pirate very well ... brought a bright smile (like the one of Buddha) on my face.

  9. LOL at your last haiku hahaha

  10. That last line was funny! :-)
