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 #172, Small Mountain (provided by YerPirate)

~ 1 ~

volcanic action
tectonics or erosion
whence thou small mountain

~ 2 ~

small mountain
old man leans hard
on his walking stick

~ 3 ~

the view
of a pair of small mountains

~ 4 ~

goose can fly
over a small mountain
moose takes the low road

~ 5 ~

in a small bush
on a little mountain
tiny spider web


Carpe Diem #172


  1. The old man must be REALLY old to be leaning so hard on his walking stick! I REALLY like this one, JazzBumpa! REALLY!!!

    Small Mountain Prayers

  2. you are such a rogue - 'tiny mountains' indeed....

  3. No comment on #3, but really enjoyed your other haiku. The old man this time won my heart ♥

  4. You've done it again, JzB. Taken me through the gamut of small mountain 'takes' I am with the old man on his trek, I lean pretty hard when I hike uphill these days and the haiku itself it perfect!!


  5. I not sure what made me giggle more, your words or the image you chose to go with them JzB. :)

  6. That second haiku is really a gem. I can see that old man leaning on his walking stick while climbing a small mountain. Thank you.

  7. haha i wonder what it is about this theme that seems to set people aflame. lol i missed the playfulness in your haiku ^^

  8. Very picturesque, JzB! The last for me the most. :)

  9. The second haiku is mind blowing...

  10. Love the old man leaning on his stick. Great imagery. Of course I also adore anything Moose and Goose say.

  11. you really like spiders! I do too so I should start more haiku about them!
