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 #177, Coffee (provided by Cathy)

~ 1 ~

some can't handle truth
the thing i can't handle
is caffeine

~ 2 ~

brewed by the k-cup
regular for my sweet wife
decaf for me

~ 3 ~

old man sips coffee
hopes for warmth and energy
in all of his bones

~ 4 ~

moose and goose
nibble on coffee berries
now both are flying

~ 5 ~

spider weaves her web
in an empty coffee can
why would flies go there


Carpe Diem #177


  1. Awesome JzB. I like the third and last haiku. That one of the spider is just hilarious. Thank you for sharing.

  2. Amusing stroll through your coffee haiku. Decaf for me after a double or triple espresso in morning. Never could understand coffee drinkers late into the night. I'd be up jittering for hours. lol...with moose and goose on ceiling.

  3. poor you. caffeine is the important part of coffee... The moose and goose got it right

  4. each tell a delightful tale
    I have this great picture of a tilted rusty coffee can and ms spider in wait

  5. hahahaha i just can't get over that third haiku
    last haiku's just as funny ^^

  6. All of these are quite fun! I love the k-cup coffee but won't get a machine, the coffee is so much more expensive but great when you each need a different brew.
