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 #160, Aries (Zodiac 1)

~ 1 ~

ares and aries
War god and battering ram
clashing in the sky

~ 2 ~

why should I let
a group of far away stars
get my goat

~ 3 ~

aries is ready
for a springtime ritual
will ewe be the one

~ 4 ~

goose high in the sky
blocks moose's view of aries
no antlers to ram

~ 5 ~

orb weaver spins
at the edge of the ram's pen
the sign of aries

~~( : )~~
