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 #159, Zodiac

~ 1 ~

from the sky to you
i am sagittarius
and i do not lie

~ 2 ~

is our fortune
written in the stars
some signs say yes

~ 3 ~

old man counts the stars
reflects on constellations
shares selene's light

~ 4 ~

in the zodiac
there is neither moose nor goose
ancient oversight

~ 5 ~

in the zodiac
arachne's disappointment
 scorpion instead


Carpe Diem #159


  1. Oh we noticed those two sneak in again, we noticed!

  2. I believe the moose and the goose may read astrology ;)

  3. Those are wonderful. I enjoy astrology and should probably do some astrology related verse too.

  4. Awesome JzB, nice series of haiku. I love the third the most ... I can relate to that 'old man', I learned to appreciate astrology by my granddad (who died in 1983).

  5. Well, yes! How could those ancients leave out Moose and Goose? What were they thinking???

    Brighter than the Stars

  6. Delightful as always ~ Moose and Goose were always around just not in the sky ~ earth people ~ ^_^ ~

    Thanks for visiting and commenting .

  7. darn right! moose and goose deserve a place up there as well ^^ the spider too

  8. No moose or goose in the zodiac... Too bad

  9. An oversight, indeed, on moose and goose. Thanks for the smiles.

  10. We could start a petition for moose and goose and spider. Actually loved the last two the best ♥

  11. Yes this is an interesting series... ;-)

  12. Always eloquent, always enjoyable to read.
