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 #155, Oborozuki (hazy moon)

~ 1 ~

in hazy moonlight
long ago beneath a tree
our first kiss

~ 2 ~

in hazy moonlight
I see my wife and know
her beauty endures

~ 3 ~

in hazy moonlight
even the mighty oak tree
casts no shadow

~ 4 ~
silhouette of wings
against the hazy moon
a lunar moth

~ 5 ~

the hazy moon glows
wispy clouds float overhead
a proud cat prances

~ 6 ~

in hazy moonlight
the brown moose and the white goose
both seem to be grey

~ 7 ~

rings of haze
surround the glowing moon
inspire orb weaver

Carpe Diem #155


  1. the hopeless romantic in me was drawn to 1 & 2, of course

  2. Oh wow, Jazz. The lunar moth! I love it when two poets see the same. Well done!

  3. First five so romantic and lovely. Nice ode to moose, goose, and orb weaver.

  4. Very romantic series JzB. I love to read your posts and enjoy them very much. Always bringing some light humor to me.

  5. Indeed a prolific haiku poet ~ no haze here ~ Glad moose and goose are enjoying the haze of the moon ~ Enjoy ^_^

    Thanks for coming by and for your fun comments ~

  6. Along with Moose and Goose, I think I'm seeing in shades of grey this morning. I wonder why...

    Hazy Moon

  7. another set of great haiku, espec. liked the lunar moth....boy, is your 'haiku mind' fertile!

  8. That first one took my breath away.. very good.

  9. that first kiss! under moonlight you say? very romantic!

  10. Beautiful set of haiku. The first one is so romantic, loved it! And the 3rd, 4th, & 6th are true winners.

  11. Oak tree and Lunar moth are my favorites, but they are all excellent.
