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.

VisDare 14

I'd had my eye on her for days.   When the time was right, I'd approach her. 

All right - truth to tell, I was working up the nerve.  But today was the day.  I'd boldly walk right up to her, and if things went well, sweep her into my arms.

Finally, I felt ready.  The time was right.  But on this day of all days, as her long strides took her on her way, and I set out to approach her, she had on a leash what must be a new pet.

And it was - of all things - a woman!


  1. JzB This story made me smile, a nice twist, deftly delivered. Good stuff!

  2. I actually laughed out loud at the last line!

  3. Hahaha!! Great twist at the end. I love how the narrator of your tale is another feathered friend at street level. O to see the world through a goose's eyes...!


This is a fun blog. Light-hearted banter is welcome. Snark is not. If you want to fight, find my other blog.

Play nice, and we'll all have fun.

I like to return visit, when I can - but I need to find you. If you have multiple blogs, please leave a direct link to the appropriate post.
