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 #132 -- Strangers

just walk on by
do not nod smile nor wave
strangers when we meet


wild adulterer
searching always on the prowl
for sex with strangers


divorce court
two who once shared a bed
now strangers


he was a soldier
she was running from her fate
strange bedfellows


I'll never meet you
people from around the world
my internet friends


fado memory
even friends like moose and goose
were strangers once


mating spiders
no time to get to know her
she has him for lunch



  1. spider has him for lunch ~ witty haiku ~ all of them ~ glad to see Moose and Goose are not strangers ^_^

  2. Wow you really covered the gamut of 'stranger' The spider tale in three lines is 'delicious'!

  3. I've lived that divorce court scenario, and you've described it well in just a handful of words.

    All the Young Strangers

  4. Lovely series on strangers JzB. That last one, on spiders, is my favorite.

  5. awwwwww :( @ haiku #5
    very realistic and honest set of haiku!


  6. fado?
    a riddle!
    is it an Irish pub in Chicago?



  7. Though we will never meet in person, I look forward to hearing from all of you every day.

    Mystic - Me too.

    Mr Uttley - Fado was the prompt a few weeks ago, and that was the first time I did a moose and goose entry.


  8. I love the spider one but as usual you have many great entries.

  9. So much to enjoy here as always. Thank you :)
