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 #194, Strength (VIII) Tarot

We had a fine day.  Took my mom, my sister, and my lovely wife to lunch.  It's 150 mile round trip to see my mom.  Later, we had dinner at my step-son's house, and got to spend some time with three of our granddaughters.  It was all good, but I'm tired, and moose, goose and spider get a day off.  [To be completely honest, I don't know how to work them into today's prompt.]   Now, down to the little bit of business I can handle tonight.

Carpe Diem #194


  1. It's okay to give your fine friends the day off. More important to spend time with your mom. Nice haiku.

  2. moose, goose, and spider
    gathering strength
    for next day's haiku

  3. Deep thoughts today. Sounds like a lovely albeit tiring day of family. Grandbabies are awesome!

  4. Glad you gave your friends and yourself a respite! 150 miles ~ lots of driving ~ lovely haiku for strength ~ enjoy the week ~ ^_^

  5. Good to let the moose a day of.

    Love the first one

  6. Poet spends the day
    with a gaggle of women
    too pooped to write

  7. As always a wonderful post with little gems. Thank you.
