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.

Carpe Diem #163, Cancer (Zodiac 4)

~ 1 ~

herakles' foe
hard shell no protection
cast into the stars

~ 2 ~

just the idea
that far off stars rule our lives
makes me quite crabby

~ 3 ~

goose is perplexed
why is her good friend moose
in such a bad mood

~ 4 ~

orb weaver looks up
envying the sky crab
in her web of stars

 ~~~  69  ~~~


  1. I do love a little mythology :)

  2. love that first haiku, and that you included mythology ^^

  3. You covered the crab quite wekk - i must admit I didn't catch all the references but the words and images worked well - of course you had t oadd you own little dry humor. I'm thinking that a signature.

  4. First and last are my favorites today. "cast into stars" and "web of stars" Love.

  5. That last haiku is a masterpiece JzB, thank you
