The Lighter Side of JzB

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

Retirement Blues. (There be dragons!)

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 #153, Haru ta (Spring paddy fields)

~ 1 ~

spring paddy field
green as the Dothraki Sea
drown in the silence

~ 2 ~

spring paddy fields
land baron with MBA
sees prime golf course plot

~ 3 ~

in the paddy field
old man alone and quiet
basks in solitude

~ 4 ~

the rice comes later
for now moose and goose
dine on vetch

~ 5 ~

in the quiet field
you are never quite alone
spider is lurking


Carpe Diem #153


  1. Not another bloody golf course...what about the old man's solitude?

  2. Fine collection..yes, that spider...!

  3. haha loved that last haiku, reminds me of little miss muffet ^^

  4. well-crafted and light-hearted set.,,Game of Thrones is starting the next season really soon - can't wait...

  5. Quiet but never alone in the vast expanse of the paddy fields. More money if converted to golf links. Nicely JzB!


  6. I thought it was snakes lurking in the paddy field... spiders too ,,,

  7. I will certainly keep an eye on my curds and whey..

  8. haiku for a fictional world... a new level!
    loved the set, but the first one made me laugh out laud! still laughing!
