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 #168, Sagittarius (The Archer) (Zodiac 9)

~ 1 ~

chiron or crotus
more confused mythology
is the arrow true

~ 2 ~

naive straight shooter
often blunt with people who
can't handle the truth

~ 3 ~

old man remembers
harsh words spoken in haste
they can't be undone

~ 4 ~

moose and goose don't fear
words of sagittarius
only his arrows

~ 5 ~

like an archer
spider pierces her victim
with a fatal sting



Carpe Diem #168


  1. Interesting you identified with a few common features of your Zodiac. Probably true for us all. Is are true? Brilliant to me...with double meaning. Intentional? Make sure Moose hides from Mark ;-)

  2. Ever versatile haiku ~ glad moose and goose are doing well ~ love the last haiku ~ poignant ^_^

    thanks for visiting and commenting.

  3. Another nice series on Sagittarius. I like that last one on the spider the most, but that third haiku is also a gem. Thank you JzB for sharing.

  4. I got all Jack Nicholson with your 2nd and guilty on the 3rd.

  5. seems that you met your mark this day, archer :)
