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.

Carpe Diem #119 - Windmill

Dutch Windmill in Sakura, Japan
Wikipedia Commons

 Windmill waves to me
Across a field of tulips
Every day a grind

~  :  ~

On a windy day
While frolickers fly their kites
Windmill plies its trade

~  :  ~

Blind date at windmill
Not terribly romantic
Plus they're going Dutch

~  :  ~

Moose tilts at windmill
Antlers raking through the sails

Wise Goose ducks his head
