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.

100 WCGU -- Week 84

Amazing -- first draft weighs in at EXACTLY 105 words!

My father, never a fearful man, was terrified that I’d get some girl “in trouble.”

Shy, socially awkward me – what a joke.

There was a girl I had my eye on, Jenny: slender, dark-haired, cute, but not the type other guys would notice.

But she was shy, too.

Not so Sheila.  I don’t know what drew her to me.  Maybe it was the challenge.

She took me for a walk in the woods, a quiet place where we were utterly alone.

She knew what to do and how to do it, and as the line was crossed, I knew I’d never be quite the same.

  1. Yep, those old days of youth. The line is crossed, and then suddenly everything goes to sheep dip. Or at least so I found. Well written and evocative.


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.
