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 # 129 - Forsythia

wild blonde 
beautiful in springtime
autumn memory


queen of spring
golden garlands in your hair
deposed by roses


pruning moose
bush shaped into golden wings
for posing goose


yellow orb weaver
web deep in forsythia
perfect camouflage


carpe diem # 129


  1. wild blonde definitely made me smile ^^
    golden garlands in your hair -- such a pretty image

  2. Moose is multi-talented--a pruner, yet!

  3. I particularly like the last of these poems. It gives me a vivid picture.

  4. Delightful! haiku very creative and feels like Spring ~ Moose sure performs for that goose ~ Love your humor ~ delights the heart ^_^
