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 # 118 - Stork

It seems that only a few places in North America are home to storks.  But we still have the legend of storks bringing babies.  I suppose that traveled over from Europe with our ancestors.  Or maybe the stork brought it.

What the stork brings
Can be a blessing from God
Or a rude surprise

~  :  ~

When the stork brought me
It was icy December
Dropped me on my head

~  :  ~

When the stork plays games
And parents are so flustered
The cuckoo gets blamed

~  :  ~

Stork in the arctic
Delivers a parrot egg
A Tern for the worse

~  :  ~  :  ~  :  ~

Goose flies with the stork
Moose broods beneath his antlers
What will come of this
