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 #133, Risshun (coming of Spring)


early in Springtime
sunlight bursting at first dawn
old snow glistens


tulips open
cherry blossoms undisturbed
first bees


two lips open
absent parents undisturbed
first kiss


icicles melt
drip from moose's antlers
cold drink for goose


crocus opens
busy spider undisturbed
weaving her round web



  1. Lovely sequence. I liked most the last three haiku

  2. the delight of spring comes through all of your haiku and of course, I love the moose giving goose a drink ~ heart warming haiku ^_^

  3. Oh, that cunning, yet enterprising, goose: thirsty and knows how to quench her thirst!

  4. Can't wait for those flowers to show up! Just a single crocus would be enough to light my fire!

  5. so many sets of haikus and each one better than the previous ! loved the first two sets the most :0

  6. * i meant to include a :) at the end of my comment . typo . sorry :)

  7. The opening of tulips is definitely a sign of spring!

  8. Lovely series on Spring time JzB ... every haiku a little gem. I love that first haiku the most.

  9. Lovely set of haiku! The essence of the coming of spring beautifully captured. The first one is my favourite. Cheers!

  10. The third bring back so many memories.

  11. All lovely...special affection for cherry blossom and bees. I don't quite connect to moose. All wonderful to read.

  12. These are lovely, but the third is my favourite. Young lovers should make the most of absence, as you too may one day be the parents!
