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.

fierce nemean lion
first victim of herakles
skinned with its own claw

the sun in leo
of course - the fire within
burns generously

~ 3 ~

i'm the lucky one
beautiful leo lady
shares her life with me

~ 4 ~

under leo's sign
moose and goose pay homage
to the king of beasts

when spiders unite
they can tie down a lion*
[only if they're quick]

Carpe Diem #164


  1. glad you got your Leo woman they are strong and loyal

  2. JzB ... these haiku are wonderful. So glad to hear your beautiful girl is a Leo.

  3. Lovely and fun haiku ~ glad moose and goose are honor their king ~ Life with a Leo can be rather intriguing ~ Happy Day ^_^

  4. #2 and #3 are beautiful. And lucky you...lucky her! Am suspecting you have an affinity for tattoos? Beautiful photos of them.

  5. Thanks, all.

    Maggie - Actually, I think tats are gross, and piercings even more so. It's just that tats are some of the more interesting zodiac illustrations.


  6. enjoyed the Greek reference in the first...
