The Lighter Side of JzB

Here you will find photos, poetry, and possibly some light-hearted foolishness. For the Heavier Side

Retirement Blues. (There be dragons!)

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 Special #31, Chèvrefeuille's 'the scent of Autumn'

 Autumn in Michigan - Pic by JzB

Inspirational Haiku

aki no kaori hiisu no ue ni mangetsuno hikarino nakawo aruku

walking on the heath
in the light of the full moon
the scent of autumn

My humble offerings

~ 1 ~

old man sniffs and smells
wood smoke apples pumpkin spice
winter is coming

 ~ 2 ~

autumn aromas
tell goose it's time to migrate
moose is now forlorn

~ 3 ~

scent of autumn tells
insects to over-winter
spider sits and waits
