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.

Friday Flash 55

I sat in the last pew.

Her husband sat in front, head bowed.

Her daughters, now almost grown women, looking so much like her, gave the readings.

I shed my silent tear, prayed for the repose of her soul; that her sins may be forgiven; and thanked God that they would never have to know.



  1. heh...and that she did not give up those sins til she was

  2. ...Really nice ending - So much NOT said.
