The Lighter Side of JzB

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 #180, Chocolate (provided by KZ)


~ 1 ~

aztec beverage
delight for their vicious gods
laced with hot pepper

~ 2 ~

dark chocolate
perfect coat for blueberries
and almonds

~ 3 ~

dark chocolate
gives a sensuous buzz
better than kissing

~ 4 ~

sweet lips so tasty
from chocolate indulgence
i want your kisses

~ 5 ~

delicate goose sips
moose dives in head first
he's already brown

~ 6 ~

helpful spiders
don't eat chocolate - they eat
pests on cacao trees


Carpe Diem #180


  1. That's what it said at the link.
    You might want to conduct your own experiment.


  2. Awesome post JzB. Really a joy to read these haiku on 'chocolate'. All haiku on this prompt have in some way some what of sensuality.

  3. better than kissing? mmmnnn i need to think about that haha this set is sheer delight. ^^ and i'm ever grateful to the spider

  4. Just the image of The Smothers Brothers reminded me of their vat of chocolate bit. My brain retains the strangest oddity of past facts. lol. Enjoyed your light hearted haiku.

  5. You want those kisses only because they contain traces of chocolate!

  6. Yes, Ese once sent me chocolate laced with hot chillis from her native Latvia, was delicious!
    Great set- as always!

  7. No chocolate is not better than kissing - kissing is better with chocolate.

    Love it.

  8. A truly delicious set of haiku, JzB. You made me start going through shelves trying to figure out if there's somewhere some dark indulgence left :)
