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 #191, The Lovers (VI) Tarot

~ 1 ~

here we are two fools
man and woman naked
what could go wrong

~ 2 ~

god's high mystery
can it be revealed
in man's base instinct

~ 3 ~

the urge says thou shall
but the commandment says not
god's sense of humor

~ 4 ~

old man peruses
woman man lofty angel
which one would he chose

~ 5 ~

goose soars upward
to the angel - moose stays down
with naked people

~ 6 ~

one tree holds a snake
the other engulfed in flames
no place for spider

Carpe Diem #191


  1. Missed you! These are great but #3 is my favorite! And that is not the only joke he's played on us!Lovers

  2. Nice to see you here again JzB ... ah that wonderful lightfootedness and humour in your haiku. Just an awesome take on The Lovers.

  3. Ah, so pleased to see you again JzB :)
    God's sense of humour...what could go wrong?

  4. Yes, such a lovely stroll down JzB lane. Giggling at moose and loving the spider. Love your wry humor in the rest.

  5. All very different takes on the prompt. Great job!

  6. the moose and the spider star in delightful post

  7. Your style has been sorely missed! As for that goose & comment!

  8. Agree with above, you have been missed... a lot of nice ones here.. but the favorite is the first.

  9. Thanks, everyone.

    I felt a little rusty putting these together, glad they didn't disappoint.


  10. hope you felt missed
    I missed the weekly characters of the Moose Goose and spider

    you give us so many places for our imaginations to soar in these haiku - a delight

  11. here we are two fools
    man and woman naked
    what could go wrong

    Good question JzB! Why it had to be the apple!
