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 Special # 22 - Chiyo-Ni's Morning Glory

Inspiration Haiku:
morning glory!
the well bucket-entangled,
I ask for water


In beauties strong fist
I am captured forever
By its strong tendrils

~  :  ~  :  ~

Morning Glories climb
Grasp and tie up in a snare
Like jealous lovers

~  :  ~  :  ~

Save me from beauty
It has me in a death grip
I need room to breath

~  :  ~  :  ~
Moose stopped to smell them
Now his antlers are entrapped
Goose asks for scissors

 ~  :  ~  :  ~

Amid the tendrils
Spider weaves her own deft trap
Snare within a snare 

~  :  ~  :  ~


  1. the last one! pure haiku, there.

  2. I can picture that spider patiently building her snare! Lovely visit through the windmills of your mind. Oh wait that was last week.

  3. love the idea of jealous overs tangled in each other as well as the image of strong tendrils of beauty

  4. Wonderful series JzB. That 'spider'-haiku is as haiku is meant to be. Thank you.

  5. So much variety with a single prompt ... well done !!!

  6. Does Goose get her scissors? And who is there to ask? Oh, so many unanswered questions!

  7. I really like the moose/goose one today. Smiling!

  8. Spiders and morning glories both weave tangled webs. This haiku is finely woven. Well done!

    Complaining Morning Glory

  9. Wonderfully written and always glad to come check on the 'moose' ~ ^_^

  10. Oh yes, the spider haiku is great. I love to see where a prompt takes us :-)

  11. You do have your way with words, JzB! Save me from beauty with smile on my lips :)
