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 #170


  1. Dazzling haiku ~ ever the wit ~ Checkin on moose and goose ~ ^_^ Enjoy the week ~

  2. You surprised me with your orb weaver haiku. Began so profound and then...giggles. Thank you!

  3. I like that one with the old man too, who secretly also appears now and then, though no relation to the moose or goose of course, fine work my friend..

  4. Nice series JzB. That third one is my favorite

  5. Great fun JzB. Loved the last one!

  6. I don't know the answer to the last question, but Spiderman rules! (and was this a water spider, per chance?)

  7. Always a joy to visit here. My favorites are, thirsty old man, and Spiderman.
