The Lighter Side of JzB

Here you will find photos, poetry, and possibly some light-hearted foolishness. For the Heavier Side

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 #136, Haru Ichiban (First Spring Gust)

~ 1 ~

last storm of Winter
might be the first gust of Spring
warm sun follows

~ 2 ~

instead of snow
we get snow plus wind and rain
slippery roads

~ 3 ~

Michigan Springtime
if you are from Florida
is worse than Winter

~ 4 ~

routine fly ball
becomes a four base hit
on wings of wind

~ 5 ~

moose and goose
struggling against wind and rain
sometimes it takes two

~ 6 ~

haru turbulence
web a bouncing trampoline
spider hangs on tight

~ : ~


  1. seasonal tiff
    winter leaves
    in a huff
