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.

Five Sentence Fiction - Flame

Last night we made love by the hearth.

We clung so tightly, then slept in the embers' warm glow.

Warm, like our love, I thought.

But when morning came she was gone.

In the fireplace nothing but cold, grey ash.

  1. It sounds like you have been to Norwegian Wood. I like this.

  2. I like this. Heat and passion, cold and loss. It's good :)

  3. love, loss, heat, hope, ash, ache... All in five sumptuously sparse sentences. Delightful!


This is a fun blog. Light-hearted banter is welcome. Snark is not. If you want to fight, find my other blog.

Play nice, and we'll all have fun.
