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 #184, Tarot (regular)

~ 1 ~

simple playing cards
not quite - filled with mystery
and symbolism

~ 2 ~

find the right entry
to what your spirit longs for
one door of many

[with a h/t to Maggie]

~ 3 ~

what is life
but a pack of delusions
here let me shuffle

[with a h/t to Mark]

~ 4 ~

like seeding rain clouds
tarot card nucleation
for inner thoughts


Carpe Diem #184


  1. I especially love the one about "here let me shuffle"

  2. I am glad to see you JzB and read this wonderful series of haiku. For a moment I thought 'I hope not that this Tarot-month will be the death of my daily haiku meme, because the Tarot is so controvisial', but I have read already nice haiku, including yours, on Tarot. I hope that with this Carpe Diem month the Tarot will become a bit more positive.

  3. No, I want to can cut the deck..
